  • The Seal Center is a fun place to stop in and peruse the items for sale (we bought a cute book on the unusual foods Iceland is famous for). What is unusual is I decided to buy a ticket to see the seal...  more »

  • The Seal Center was a fun place to visit while we were staying the night in Hvammstangi. They had a lot of cool seal information. This place really gave you a sense of how critical seals were to this region throughout the years.
  • Basically a store with articles for tourists visiting Iceland. Don't make a detour for it, unless you're bored and have nothing better to do. If you're looking for a store for little "souvenirs" to bring back from your trip in Iceland, you'll find a few items of interest. Restrooms (toilets, WC) available on site but quite busy.
  • A decent stop for a break, but a small showing of seals and not much to do in town...
  • Lots of neat items in the gift shop. We did not.visit the museum or take the tour due to high seas and rough conditions, however the staff were very friendly and helpful.
  • A great souviner shop and they sell beer at the front (for an affordable price) to drink during your visit. Very much enjoyed!
