Even if you don’t remember the punk movement of the seventies and eighties, if you’re visiting Reykjavík then this might be the perfect novelty museum for you to visit. And appropriately (some would say) the museum is located in a disused underground public toilet.
As you can imagine then, the museum is small. But you can listen to Icelandic punk rock, see videos, check out original handbills and posters from the era. As one reviewer remarked the place ‘doesn’t take itself too seriously’ yet most reviewers regard the place as being great fun.
You can even play the musical instruments that are scattered around. There are headphones that you can put down from the ceiling to listen to many examples of this once quite revolutionary genre.
The museum opened in November 2016 and you can see images from the opening in the video below.
