  • Way overpriced, we were only in there 20 minutes. Really big models of whales, that is it - nothing else to do. Save your money and read the Free Willy Article on Wikipedia instead as that was the onl...  more »
  • Museum very very expensive, staff not friendly and the audio guides which do not work. In short to avoid.

  • Of course it's expensive and there's really only two 'rooms' but just to stand alongside/underneath these amazing life size mammals is fantastic. You can hang up your coats etc in reception, and ask f...  more »

  • If you are keen to expand your whale wisdom I would recommend a visit here whale you are in Iceland. Whale it's not the largest facility, it is whale organized. Whale you are here you can see many extraordinary exhibits. I wish I could have stayed longer but as you whale know, business calls.
  • Nice display out in the harbour. Getting there by car or bus is recommended. The exhibition takes about 20 min to go through so don’t plan to spend a whole afternoon here.
  • Exhibition takes about 30 mins to have a run through with life size whales exhibits. Good information about whales and dolphins alike. Bus 14 is the only public transport close enough getting you to this part of the old habour.
  • Neat place. A must stop if you want a relaxing atmosphere. Very informative.
  • Great place to learn about whales, and wonderful facilities and food shop. It comes with a free audio guide that's easy to time.

Where to stay in Reykjavik

In this highly walkable capital, many of Reykjavik's hotels and guesthouses offer close proximity to the city's popular attractions, bars, and restaurants. The waterfront offers an exciting dose of activity. Although Reykjavik provides plenty of accommodations to its flocks of visitors, there is a dearth of budget options in the city. Price-conscious visitors should consider staying in a hostel, with both private and dorm rooms available, or a nearby campsite. Although the campground is not as centrally located as some hotels, guests are better positioned to take advantage of the natural surroundings.
