This was an informative visit and well presented. I feel like it was time well spent considering the country runs on geothermal energy. We didn't pay for a tour, but we were charged to enter, about 9 bucks, vs the 19 for the tour. I've...More

We had an interesting time seeing the geothermal exhibit, seeing the plant operate and the great film about geothermal energy.

We arrived after the last tour, so the visitor desk person told us to start at the film on the second floor and then go upstairs to the other exhibits. We did just fine on our own. There is a wealth of information conveyed through...More

The water is gone, there is nothing to see here. Go someplace else. It only costs a few dollars to get in and you get to watch people build an artificial geyser as the water has dried up and the various pools have dried up.

Incredibly overpriced for what it is. We did the basic entrance fee on their website, $17 a person including a tour. A little high but we thought it would be at least an interesting experience. The “tour” that happens every hour maybe lasted 5 minutes...More

We booked the VIP tour due to time constraints that we had (we needed to make sure that we could have a tour at a specific time), which was a total mistake. Everything you learn about geothermal power in Iceland from this exhibit can be...More

We stopped off here. It’s interesting to see but there’s not really that much to see. The video is good but only 5 mins long.
