Viking world is located at the seaside in the town of Reykjanesbær with a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean. Viking world is a five exhibition museum along with a settlement zoo, a playground, and an outdoor classroom.

The frame around the Icelander, the exhibition hall itself, was designed by the award-winning architect Guðmundur Jónsson. Its modern architecture highlights the beauty of the Viking ship the Icelander (Íslendingur). Visitors can look at the ship from all sides, and they can even go on board and let the mind take them to explore lands across the sea while they stand on the deck of the Icelander.

The museum, which opened in 2009, offers five different exhibitions which are all connected to the Viking age in one way or the other. They provide a unique opportunity to learn about the history and lifestyle of the Vikings of the North Atlantic a thousand years ago. Also, visitors can enjoy the magnificent view of the ocean from the Cafe as well as free internet access. A gift shop and facilities for special events such as lectures and receptions are also available on site.
