Reykjanesbær has a rich musical culture and has been known to be referred to as the home of pop music in Iceland, where the first Icelandic Beatles band Hljómar was formed, where the first pop star in Icelandic history, Rúnni Júll, took the stage.
You can experience this unique story in the Rock Museum of Iceland in Hljómahöll, where an important museum of life, events and culture has been created in Reykjanesbær.
Duus Museum, which previously housed Danish merchants and the sale of fish, now serves a new purpose as the town’s cultural center, where there are galleries of the Art Museum and the Regional Museum and a number of exhibitions are held each year.
Reykjanesbær Library is a living museum that offers exhibitions and events all year round. Then you can head to the café there for a bite to eat and even take look at the papers.
