„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 iPads guests receive during the visit. And don’t forget to check out our Sound Lab where you can sing your heart out in our custom made karaoke booth or try an electric drumkit, guitar, and bass and feel like a real rocker!“ Easy to find, in walking distance and or you can bicycle there on one of our free bikes.
