“Great experience”

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We really like the museum. Is worth to reserve half a day to see it. It has a lot of interesting information about whales, how the live, the species that are there. Also very well prepare for children.

It completes perfectly the watching whales experience

Great museum, but expensive souvenir shop! Also the video is well-worth seeing. It's better to go to this museum before you go whale watching because you already learned something about their behaviour and leads to a better understanding of the whales during your tour on the sea.

We liked the whale museum and found the information given very interesting, although we knew a lot about whales already. All kinds of whales are explained, not only the ones that come to Iceland. Information is given on how they breed, feed, hear, breath and so on. Everything is easy to understand and yet with a certain level of scientific background. Some of the details are presented in a very descriptive way, e.g. the amount of milk a whale calve needs to drink is symbolized by the respective number of bottles. On the top floor several sceletons of stranded whales are shown, which we found particularly interesting.

If you choose Selka for the whale watching tour you get a 10% discount on the entrance fee.

This whale museum is in the town where whaling was the main income. The whaling has gone and it now specialises in whale watching and the museum. It is an excellently arranged museum devoted entirely to whales of all types. They have many exhibits and sketetons of whales as well as informative documentaries. It was a really good use of time to learn more of these animals.
