  Ůjˇ­menningarh˙si­ (Culture House)
by brazwhazz

The sagas are a unique window into the history of Iceland during the Middle Ages, from the Viking era to the christianisation of the Scandinavian people.

The Ůjˇ­menningarh˙si­ (Culture House) presents a very interesting display of the medieval manuscripts telling these sagas. It is a great starting point for anyone who wishes to know more about Icelandic culture (and, perhaps, Icelanders' deep interest for books and history).

However, I don't know how this compares to the National Museum, since I did not have time to see both museums.
