One of the best things in Reykjavik, a brilliantly and lovingly put together homage and history to punk rock music in Iceland. Can't recommend it enough.

The punk museum in in an old underground toilet block. The guy who runs it is friendly and is happy for you to play the drums or guitar and offers to take pictures. The information is delievered with humor.

Me and my friend stumpled upon this museum and are so happy we did. The owner was such a nice guy, and the bathroom turned museum gave it a unique look. Would definitively recommend going here.
