This is a unique museum, full of interesting information about punk scene in Iceland. It's a small place and might get crowded - still definitely worth a visit. Go there, see, hear and experience it!

Very much in the original punk spirit. 'If we want a museum, then we'll bleedin' well have one'. Run by a couple of chancers, and good luck to them. It's bit of fun, worth a look.

A delightful lad running this underground museum of Icelandic Punk. Worth the $10 for a die hard music fan. Probably not for kids because it's pretty academic.

Because we live in the age of Internet review sites, and everyone knows this or that "underground" establishment, you may be surprised to find out this place is literally subterranean. No joke, we happened upon this place by total accident when we were walking back...More

A great little museum that can be enjoyed by old punk rockers or kids who just want to bang on some drums.

Very good little underground museum; featuring toilet cubicle features, very niche and unique nice to hear Icelandic music from the headphones. Would recommend.

Its on the main shopping street next to the priministour house. Takes 15 to 30 min to walk through and is rock on. Dear to be different, dear to punk the system.

In many ways this museum represents so much of what I love about Iceland and its people--iconoclastic, artistic, and individualistic. The best experience of this museum was talking with the owner, an engaging gent who was part of the Icelandic punk scene in its heyday....More
