Life on a NATO Base
Exhibition guided tour

At ATP Iceland we will offer a guided tour to the exhibition 'Life on a NATO Base' that focuses on the everyday lives of U.S. soldiers and their families during their tour of duty at Naval Air Station Keflavik (NASKEF), Iceland.

For over half a century, more than 200,000 U.S. citizens lived and worked at NASKEF along with thousands of Icelandic employees That is a high number considering that the Icelandic population is barely more than 300,000.

The gates to NASKEF were closed in September 2006, marking the end of an era. The exhibition is a beginning of a conversation that looks at different cultures and how they coexisted during this time.

The exhibition opened in May 2013.

The tour starts at Andrews Theatre at 14:00 with a short walk towards the exhibition with interesting stories on the way.

Price 1,000 ISK (approx. 5 GBP).
