Free, clean bathrooms are a precious thing in Iceland. Also, there are maps, and the staff are very friendly and patient in answering questions. There's also some information about the area & the geothermal activity. Good pit stop if you're looping around the lake.

A typical visitor center with good information about the area and displays in both Icelandic and English. They have souvenirs for sale most of then are for children but if you are into collecting things from where you have been they do have some different things here. There are WC's up and down stairs you can use which are nicer than some of the port o potties scattered around the park. The bus tours all stop here so the building will fill up quickly for 10 to 15 minutes.
The Good: some very nice displays and information on how the area was formed including old Icelandic legends .
The Bad: if you need to use the bathroom when 2 or 3 buses are in the parking lot
The Ugly: no ugly just information
On the scuba bubble scale of 1 to 10 bubbles I give this place 6 bubbles

Very helpful, friendly staff and the exhibition about the local area (in Icelandic and English) was interesting. Note the limited opening hours in winter.

The visitor center had interesting exhibits and helpful staff. It's right next to where the Ring Road tees. Left is the lake, right is the village and visitor center. A cooperative handcraft shop is next door with a great selection of lopapeysas.

There was lots of good information to be had about the Myvatn area at this centre. It was clean and very easy to get to. Best of all, it had a bathroom!

Our tour bus broke down at Myvat visitors center. We knew there would be a long wait before a replacement would arrive. The ranger on duty, Haraldvt Avdbergsson, was so helpful by providing his break room and supplies for coffee where we could relax and enjoy the center. The time went quickly and we were able to learn a lot there.

We stopped here and were glad we did. Nice restrooms and nice folks to tell you all about the area. You can get a bird map here for $1 or so and the staff is happy to help you plan your visit.
