We had an overnight layover in Keflavik, and it was not convenient to go into Reykjavik because of the Flybus return schedule. So we took the local bus from the airport hotel to the Duushus Museum. It is about a 10-minute ride, then a 5 minute walk. It's right on the water, so it'll be cold, but you get that... More

We stopped in Keflavic on a rainy afternoon and decided to visit the Duus museum, if you are ever near take time to visit. There are 6 different exhibition rooms including an art hall which will have different artists throughout the year, and a boat hall containing over 100 hand made models and a pictorial history of fishing in Iceland....

I never saw so many boat models in my life. Great place to browse through on a rainy afternoon! The staff was very friendly.

We loved all the model boats and the stories along the wall. We were so lucky that a local artist from this town was just opening her exhibit. Clay sculptures with a flare for the eccentric. Loved the video of her making her artwork. We also enjoyed a free day.

If you're doing a stopover and staying in the town of Keflavik, this is a nice walk from the town core with beautiful scenery. Unlike everything in Iceland (including $5 for a small bottle of Fanta), the admission price wasn't too expensive. Interesting enough exhibits - but what really grabbed me was the artwork done by the kids. They have... More

We went here because the description intrigued us and according to guide book, we thought it was free. It is not free. Was it worth the admission price...maybe. I did learn a lot about the Iceland fishing industry.

We stayed close to the Museum. It gives a nice view of the local historical information and has handbags made from recycled material. Overall it is an interesting place worth a visit

Our lodging was across the road, so this museum made a pleasant stop on a windy afternoon. The docent was knowledgeable and helpful in English. There were several interesting exhibits about Icelandic merchant life.

We were just passing and called in to get out of the snow. There was lots of local historical information and a great collection of model ships. Also an exhibition of handbags made from recycled material. They had recycled and fabricated some really weird and wonderful things,
