    I enjoyed my visit! But please note it is mostly filled with art pieces ofand historical items related to vulcano's, there is limited information to learn about vulcano's and geology. I enjoyed the rocks with explanations and the geological map of the Snæfellsnes. The movie was nice, but also light on information about vulcanism and focussed more on the impact of the latest eruption of Eyjafjallajökull on humans and airtrafic.

    very interesting museum. the owner( Haraldur Sigurðsson ) of the museum is the best specialist in the world of volcanoes.

    We were given an extremely informative tour. The guide was a graduate student who was very passionate about the subject. She imparted a lot of information about volcano in general and the museum in specific. The museum has a lot of art featuring valcano. The movies are a nice extra. Note it is a small museum.

    Technically this is a museum of volcanic art not of volcanoes and their workings per se. We did not have a guide.
