  • Easy to get there by Public bus no 18. Beautiful exhibitons and lovely cafe on the top. The view from the balcony on a sunny day is simply fantastic.  more »
  • Nice exhibitions, with interesting info on Iceland's forces of nature. The Planetarium was closed for maintenance on our visit, so that will have to be next time...  more »

  • So much to do. Fun interactive things...even for adults. Observation deck was great. Ice caves were fun. Aurora film was superb !!
  • Really enjoyed our visit. Some visually stimulating things like the aurora display. Some physically stimulating like the ice cave. Some intellectually stimulating like the water story and displays. They have really thought about how to draw you into the stories and keep you interested.
