Amazing Museum Just ideal To understand the incredible geographical place Iceland is. It’s small and easy to follow, important to see how Iceland was formed. The iceberg is worth going in!

Perlan is deceptive from the outside. It mostly looks like a bunch of cleaned up oil storage tanks. Inside the exhibits are well positioned and easy to access. Their descriptions are clear and informative. They use a modicum of technology in the exhibits but not...More

This is a wonderful museum for us to learn all the wonders in Iceland. Our daughter enjoyed learning about birds, ocean creatures, and landscapes. Our ice cave visit here is truly fantastic!
