I have never seen anything like this before. Impressive with all the sculptures. The museum should have more lights so you could see everything better. The entrance fee !!

Can be interesting for kids. I guess its also one of those "tick off the box" experiences... if u feel spending 128 NOK (something around that).

I thought it was a bit overpriced, but enjoyed walking through the display. The lighting was not very good, which meant that photos did not come out so well, as flash lighting is obviously not allowed. On exiting, you help yourselves to a small glass of some or other drink to warm you up.

Somewhat tricky to find, but is is located at the end of the dock (and not 100 meter before where the sign is outside and inside). It is no so big, but you walk through the ice sculptures which are amazingly made. I can imagine when these are new they are perfect, but after a while the sharp edges melt.... More

It was a nice visit to kill some time while waiting for the ferry. You get a free drink included in the entry price but somehow i was expecting the place to be bigger and look more like a proffesional exbition rather than crammed warehouse. I heard they would be renovating the exhibition and adding new sculptures which seems like... More

The exhibition is very small and the majority of the ice sculptures looked like having already melted somewhat - sometimes you couldn't even recognize what the sculpture should represent. We would not recommend it, especially not against the background of the price

I went to Magic Ice which is down by the pier in Svolvaer. From the outside it looks more like a warehouse. Once inside you pay at the gift and then head inside. It's a bit magical. Blue lights, music and ice. It's like a different world. The ice sculptures are fantastic. Many kinds of figures and shapes. There are... More

Over priced for what you see. Save your money for something else. We had a great time driving through out the country side and we would recommend a nice long day trip.

It is a place that remains to -6 degrees celcius to keep the ice sculptures which are very well made. You can take a welcome cocktail and take a borrow-jacket to enter. I recommend this place.

Interesting place to visit but you can only spend an hour here as it's so cold! Only opened from 6.00 pm until 10.00 pm. Drinks expensive, but different as served in an iced glass.
