Loved the indoor ice cave! The exhibits are hands on and educational. The lava room has great audio-visual effects.

This is a great place to visit. Very interesting. Best views of the city from the observation deck. Lots of great information about geology. I wish I had at least an hour to explore.

There was construction in progress, but it was still very interesting and a great learning experience. We learned a lot about glaciers and volcanic activity. Also the aquatic life in Iceland.
