Situated right by the Faxafloi Bay in the town of Reykjanes, Viking World is the home of the Viking Ship ├Źslendingur. Built in 1996, ├Źslendingur is a replica of the famous Gokstad ship, a remarkable archaeological find of an almost completely intact Viking ship excavated in Norway in 1882. Viking World is also a home of the Viking millennium exhibition produced by the Smithsonian Institution called Vikings: The North Atlantic Saga. The museum's facilities include a cafe and a souvenir shop.
