Visits to Parliament House

The education team organises visits to Parliament House only for groups with educational or academic purposes. A guided tour in the Parliament building takes 45–60 minutes. Visitors are told about the history of the Parliament of Iceland and about the work and functions of the Parliament. The guided tour is free of charge.

It is important that group visits are organised well in advance. Guided tours in the building are only availabe outside the session time.

Requests for visits to Parliament House should be made by email or tel. (354) 563 0500.
