We came to Stykkisholmur on a rainy, windy and chilly day, so we tried to look for indoor activities. We purchased a museum pass which included Library of Water, Volcano Museum and Norwegian House. We were given a code to unlock the door at the Library of Water. There’s no one else when we arrived. My husband sat down in one corner and fell asleep, while I was having a fantastic time taking pictures of the water columns and the reflections and refractions from various angles. It’s amazing how the artist strategically position the water columns to create all these different effects. I wonder what it looks like when the sun shines through the columns. There’s nothing else in the room other than these columns. It’s very quiet and zen like. It’s a good place to sit down and meditate or practice yoga. I think people will either love it or hate it. I spent an hour here until closing time. One thing for sure, the building sits on top of a hill and provides a great view of the harbour and the village.

I didn't know what to expect and it is a strange, but alluring, place. The views are stunning and the water tubes are weirdly fascinating. Definitely worth a visit but I can't quite put my finger on why...

The hilight of this for me was simply being indoors and out of the Icelandic wind. Tinea aside, the slippers were also a boon. I did no research, so this is probably My own fault, but I expected more from an attraction. This consists of three rooms. One is purely windows with nice views over water, another contains some photos and the third room (main) is where the water columns are. The main room is interesting for about 5-10 minutes where you can play with some Water distortion effects 700 ISK is not a huge amount of money, but I felt ripped off by about 650 ISK You could skip this and your life would be unaffected I expect.

The Museum of Water is still in its stunning location. You must buy a ticket and get the entrance code at either the Volcano Museum or Norwegian House. You can buy one ticket for all three museums at a lower price for each individually. Seeing all three is a nice way to spend a half day. The Volcano Museum also houses fine art featuring Volcano imagery including Japanese wood block prints. MOW is a great place to spend a little time contemplating. Some of the water columns contain water from extinct glaciers making this unusual installation particularly poignant.
