  • We found it out that is really hard and you have to be really lucky to see real whales, so we decided to come here and see some. It was not what I expected. They had some sort of presentation going on...  more »
  • Beautiful life-size whales! Really enjoyed listening to the audio recording as I walked around each exhibit.  more »
  • Located in a warehouse on an industrial estate which is quite a long walk away from anything else. The touchscreens didn't work very well so get the audio guide if you go. I was expecting more, like s...  more »

  • Pretty expensive but very informative. The whale displays are really cool but unfortunately most of the information pads weren't working the day I went. Luckily they also have the audio tour. The cafe was nice as well! Recommend for kids and people who really like whales.
  • Not a huge exhibit, but very personal. The ability to stand next to life size replicas gives a very intimate experience that you don’t get from museum displays. They have an audio guide (mp3 + headphones in multiple languages) that was very informative, with many uncommonly know facts. I took my teenage son there (who is extremely knowledgeable on ocean mammals) and he was impressed. Took about 1 hour to complete. Added bonus: you are allowed to touch all the whale models.
  • we are a family of whale lovers. And we find this museum fantastic. The presentation is extremely tasteful and the audio guide very informative. We would like to download it and listen to it at home! We found out so many things we didn’t know before. Highly recommend!
  • A very unique experience given in a very informative manner. Lots of information to take in and a great perspective view of the whales of the area. Life size models and in depth explanations of the whales were very memorable, along with a well designed layout, meaning you can literally put a hand inside the models for that real life comparison. The staff were very helpful, the museum has lots of car parking in front and is also only a 15 minute walk from the centre of Reykjavik.
  • Superb attraction with life sized whales and dolphins. Audio commentary and interactive stations provide the educational element but the sheer wonder of walking around these enormous displays is hard to express
