LOVED seeing the full skeletons of 11 whales--esp. blue whale
Jul 2021
Just seeing the entire skeleton of the HUGE blue whale was worth the admission price! It was a relatively small blue whale--only about 25 meters long. This museum is the highlight of things to see in Husavik. There is a children's playroom called the Yellow Submarine, with books about sea creatures and many other things for children to do to be entertained. The museum has two floors and is extensive. Don't forget to watch the show and pay a few more kroners to use the 5-minute virtual reality device to feel like you're actually swimming with whales and seals. This remarkable museum is wonderful. I learned so much! You can spend a few hours or all day in here. Great for a rainy day event for sure. Lastly, they have a wonderful and extensive souvenir shop where I could actually buy the things we collect (a shot glass and a fridge magnet) from this specific museum. Most sights in Iceland only sell generic Iceland items.

great museum
Jun 2021
we had some time before our whale watching trip and spent a really interesting 30 minutes here. we could have easily spent longer. we learnt so much about whales....nice exhibits and photos. the skeleton displays were really effective. In particular they showed the history of whaling...why it had risen ) and how ultimately it had declined

Great educational museum
Jun 2021 • Family
Small but informative and interesting museum. Lots of exhibits about whale species and many whale skeletons, including a blue whale. Upcoming exhibit about plastics in the ocean. Really cute kids Yellow Submarine play area (the teenagers couldn’t resist a photo opp). Great complement to a whale watching tour.

I didn't know what to expect but I could have spent hours here. Facts about each type of whale but the exhibit rooms were fascinating. Sections on harvesting, beached whales, specific anatomical variations, etc etc. So interesting!!!

Jun 2021 • Couples
A very interesting museum to visit. They have many cetacean skeletons from different species, (never thought I could see the horn of a narwhal in real life) as well as a lot of information about whales in Iceland. Definitely a must do in Húsavík.

We LOVED this little museum! I never realized I was a whale nerd but then we spent almost 3 hours in this little place, literally reading each sign and note 😄 we will be back!
Blue whale skeleton is amazing and don’t forget to check upstairs!

Mesmerising!
Aug 2019
We aren't normally keen on museums but this one had us hooked for 3 hours before we had to drag ourselves away to our next campsite. There is a cosy seating area with many books on whales with coffee too. A real blue whale skeleton is not one to miss and there was an excellent film with brilliant images on whale behaviour including their migratory patterns and mating amongst other interesting information on whales.
