The pearl looks iconic from the outside. You can see it from all over Reykjavik. We were intrigued by the write ups about the restaurant and cafe and confused by the description of it being a water storage container. Basically, it was a water storage container with an outside balcony round the top which looks out all over the surrounding countryside. Probably similar views to the big church tower (but free to go up).
The artificial geysir would normally be called a fountain.
We didn't eat in the cafe or the restaurant or visit the museum.
Unless you want to visit the museum and get some good views, we wouldn't bother with getting the bus and doing the hike.
