Powerful reminder of the forces of nature! Really good audio tour and the museum is actually built on top of the ruins of a house that was destroyed in the eruption. Incredibly learning experience! Highly recommended.

Very interesting museum with a lot of hands on experiences. It was amazing to see the house that is in the centre of the museum. The photos, videos, and interviews gave us a good insight of the experience that the volcano eruption had on the people living in Vestmannaeyjar at that time. Very interesting museum, that the whole family was happy to visit!

All very informative and a nice setup. Nicely structured and a nice touch with the wheel where you can zoom into history.

If you visit Vestmannaeyjar this is a must. Tells the horrifying story of an eruption in the island in 1973 that lasted for 5 months. This museum is the soul of Vestmannaeyjar.
