A 1973 spilled by the volcanic eruption and excavated a few years ago House stands in the Centre of the Museum. This is located inside the Museum, so that the archaeological site from the elements is protected. You can see it with the naked eye, but of course do not enter. For this, you can control multiple cameras and see details on a screen. There is also a multimedia exhibition on the outbreak and the rescue efforts. You get an informative audio guide. Unfortunately the different parts of the exhibition are very close together, so that part is playing the wrong text, what can be corrected manually. If you have time, should look at make sure the film about the outbreak. On the first floor, there is another exhibition on the volcanic island of Surtsey. It is significantly less expensive, there is particular information boards. This is ok, but it's strange that you still get the audio guide which then submits the exactly the same text as on the signs. More time spend something on the island and can buy a combination ticket, with which he can visit two other museums.show original

A very modern museum with many interactive exhibits that are more informative than gimmicky. Features an excavated house from the eruption.
Interactive, informative, well explained, fascinating and scary.
A brand new museum with a lot of interactive tools!
