Punk in Iceland is more than Bjork. You get a good sense of the music and the music that refused and resisted the status quo in Iceland. The museum is located in what was the first public restroom in Reykjavik. It seemed appropriate to house...More

Had such a great time visiting the punk museum! It's in a former public toilet block, which is great. Cost 1000isk (£7) each and was money well spent. Good to learn about the Icelandic punk scene. And at the end you get to dress up...More

Super cool, small museum and not pricey. Im an amateur punk fan but didn’t know anything about Iceland’s, and this is a cool way to get some history is a different way. Cool pictures and overall a good time.
