Built between 1906-1908, Reykjavik's Culture House is home to temporary and permanent exhibitions tracing the country's history, including literature, politics, maps, state emblems and currency. The museum was originally built to house The National Library, The National Archives, The National Museum and The Museum of National History. Now, along with major exhibitions, the Culture House also has a comprehensive library room where you can see landmark books of Icelandic cultural history, including the oldest published versions of the Sagas of the Kings of Norway, the Eddic poems, Hallgrímur Pétursson's Psalms of Christ's Passion and Vidalín's Homilies.
