  • So much to do. Fun interactive things...even for adults. Observation deck was great. Ice caves were fun. Aurora film was superb !!
  • Really enjoyed our visit. Some visually stimulating things like the aurora display. Some physically stimulating like the ice cave. Some intellectually stimulating like the water story and displays. They have really thought about how to draw you into the stories and keep you interested.
  • We had a great time on new years eve! Beautiful view all over Reykjavik! Nice museum and attractions such as the Northern Light experience and the Ice cave!
  • Great museum if you are near by go visit as it is excellent. Split over the levels it provides support information about all aspects of Iceland. A great restaurant on the top provides super food and you can go outside to see over Reykjavik.
  • Was a good place to visit, lots to look at and take in, loved the indoor ice tunnels. Is a must of visiting Iceland, has a lovely 360 viewing platform at the top with a revolving restaurant.
