  • Great location with good views of the capital. The expositions are very informative and well displayed. The cafe and restaurant at the top floor are perfect to dine with a view and to scape from the cold outside.
  • The nature of Iceland exhibition, from under the sea through the lava fields up to the glaciers. Possibility to visit an artificial ice cave, excellent planetarium and beautiful 360 degree view of Reykjavik. A bit pricey, but hey, what isn't?
