  • A small, provincial museum, but full of memories, and with a person who runs it kind and friendly. Images, modular matches, and many gadgets on the historic Match of 1972. If you visit, you can also jump to the small cemetery one kilometre from here, where there is a solitary plaque, with a name and dates of birth and death: Bobby Fischer-9/3/1943-17/1/2008. Leave us a flower, like I did.

  • Small, but nice, museum describing the 1972 world chess championship and Bobby Fischer's subsequent problems with the US government that the Icelanders ultimately rescued him from by giving him Icelandic citizenship. In our case enthusiastically described by a very knowledgeable curator. Visit his grave just outside the town after this.
  • An hour outside of Reykjavik, a must see for any chess fan. Great little place off the beaten path but well worth the drive. He is buried at a church nearby if you want to make the trip complete.
