Guided Tours

School groups

Gerðarsafn offers guided tours and museum education to school groups of all levels. The museum offers guided tours of current exhibitions every weekday at no charge to the schools. The museum visit takes about an hour but shorter or longer visits can be organized if requested. School groups are welcome to visit the museum without a guided tour. In that case, we ask that groups notify the museum of their arrival.

Please book guided tours well in advance through the email


Public groups

Gerðarsafn offers customized guided tours for groups by arrangement. We offer guided tours for small and large groups, incuding work visits, course-groups and tourists. The guided tours are free of charge when booked during the museum‘s opening hours. Participants only pay the general entrance fee.

Sign-language interpretation and visual guidance for the blind and visually impaired is provided by arrangement. Handicapped access is good in the museum and we do our best to meet the needs of individuals and groups with special needs.
