  • There is a museum, a restaurant, an ice cream shop, and an observation deck. The museum was cool with all kinds of special technological displays that enhanced the experience. The observation deck is absolutely amazing. You can see the entire city and lots of mountains. The ice cream was very good as well. I didn't try the cafe or restaurant.
  • An amazing place! Modern, perfectly done museum with a variety of highlights. Price/value is incredible. The ice caves and aurora shows are seriously great and there is so much more. We spent 2,5 hours and had a blast. Strongly recommend
  • Interesting place. You have Aurora show , ice cave, a useful information about Iceland. Flora and Fauna. Cafeteria and the circle floor moving. Ice cream and gift shop. Staff very kind.
  • Ever expanding services and the quickest route through a glacier. Enjoy the interactive displays that teach you about glaciers, water, volcanoes, and how climate change is impacting everything on the island.
  • Great place to visit especially during a rainy day. We've spent there half a day easily and enjoyed the cafe in cupola. Currently there is a ice tunel as a part of exhibition which was interesting to experience.
