Walk into the War and Peace Museum, a small building sitting on a fjord north of Reykjavík, Iceland, and you’re instantly transported into another era. Covering every wall are carefully arranged artifacts, photographs, and documents from the WWII years in Iceland. This is Guðjón Sigmundsson’s personal collection, and it’s full of surprises and uncovered secrets.

How to Listen to Museums in Strange Places
Welcome to Museums in Strange Places. I’m your host, Hannah Hethmon, and this is a podcast for people who love museums, stories, culture, and exploring the world.
In this season of the podcast, I’m visiting the museums of Iceland to discover what stories they hold and how they reflect and shape Iceland’s unique cultural identity.
The podcast is hosted by me, Hannah Hethmon, an American Fulbright Fellow living in Reykjavík. You can find and follow me on Twitter and Instagram @hannah_rfh (I love to hear from listeners FYI).
