  • The place is very small and there’s not much to see. My children and I were very disappointed. The most important thing we came to see was the VR experience and it was closed. Nothing on the website.....  more »
  • Real size models of whales. Audio guides available, interactive parts of exhibition. We really enjoyed this unique experience.  more »
  • Stumbled in here after Fly Over Iceland! Interesting place, with life sized model whales. Great to be able to see just how big these beautiful creatures are. Audio guide very helpful.  more »

  • Great walk between the sea giants. Gives you a better view of what/who they are. Don't bypass the movie in the fin whale room. Disturbing but necessary. Great great staff, also.
  • Great exhibit to learn about whales. You can use their voice guided tour or download the app and use your own device/headphones too. Allow at the very least 45 minutes but it could last 2 hours if you like to read more about all of the whales. Very kid friendly!
  • Great exhibit on the whales with life sized models in their big space and audio guides, plus a very powerful film on dangers to marine life like whales and dolphins caused by the powerful sonar used by the navies of the world, (we're the biggest) without thought to the severe damage the noise makes to these amazing creatures. Those whale strandings are now thought to be caused by naval ships.
  • Fantastic exhibition of whales! Journey around this amazing exhibition between real life size whales. Tour complete with an audio guide to provide useful information. Really enjoyed my time here. Cafe on site should you want a bite to eat plus a gift shop to take home some memories. A must go!!
  • amazing museum. 2 times a day there is the possibility of excursions with a guide and it was very interesting and informative. they also have the opportunity to discover the world of the ocean in VR. also I was very impressed with the movie about the problem of the noise in ocean, and I definitely recommend watching this film there.
