The Icelandic Punk Museum

Formally opened by Johnny Rotten in 2016, The Punk Museum is a small museum with a big attitude. The museum has on display photos, sounds, posters, instruments, clothes and various other memorabilia from the 80-90's punk scene in Iceland. Even the museum's host, Álfur, is an original punk. The museum is curated by Dr. Gunni, a veteran of rock and a historian of the Icelandic music scene.

The Icelandic punk scene fathered many of Iceland’s most famous musicians and artists, including Björk and The Sugarcubes, and mayor/comedian Jón Gnarr. The museum is located in a former public toilet in downtown Reykjavík, know as Bankastræti 0.
