Natural History Museum


The Natural History Museum was opened in May 2002. The museum is divided into two categories; geological and zoological.

The geological part focuses on the formation of Iceland, the major rock types and minerals. The zoological part focuses (with few exceptions) on Icelandic mammals, birds, fish and invertebrates.
