    National Museum of IcelandNational Museum of Iceland Reykjavik, Iceland
    this national museum would be started in 1863, but was kept in Danish museums and then, later in the attics of various buildings in Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, until 1950, when it was moved here to its permanent location. The museum would have its original name changed to the Antiquarian Collection until 1911, and then it would be kept in the National Library's attic until 1950. Today, their main permanent exhibit is called the Making of a Nation-Heritage and History in Iceland, that provides some insight into the history of this great nation from its earliest history of settlement to the current day. The exhibition contains some 2000 objects that date from its settlement to the present day, along with 1000 photographs from the 20th century. It has been conceived as a journey through time, starting out with the ship that brought the first settlers here to a new land and new home, and ending with the fabulous new airport that brings visitors to this frozen tundra in the Atlantic Ocean.
