The Icelandic Museum of Rock 'n' Roll

Many people know Icelandic artists such as the Sucarcubes, Björk, Sigur Rós and Of Monsters and Men. What’s their story? What’s their background? And how did these bands become so successful coming from the tiny population of Iceland?

At the Icelandic Museum of Rock ‘n’ Roll you can walk through the history of Icelandic pop and rock music throughout the years. Guests can dive deeper into the history of each artist and listen to their music with the help of the Rock ‘n’ Roll app on the iPad we lend you during your visit.

Among memorabilia portrayed in the museum is Gunnar Jökull's drumkit he used on the album Lifun with Trúbrot, LED-light outfit of Paul Oscar, gas-masks used in Sigur Rós videos, several Sugarcubes items plus a whole lot more.  And don’t forget to check out our Sound Lab to try out some instruments and feel like a real rocker!
