  • Like a gigantic 3D webpage you can dive in, click and find information in more depth on Iceland's geology, glaciers, fauna and flora. Planetarium (aurora borealis show), ice cave with -15° C and 360.....  more »
  • Friendly and extremely well done. Includes planetarium, ice cave, observation cafe, with Icelands' geology in digestible and pleasurable presentation. Don't miss it.  more »
  • So much to do. Fun interactive things...even for adults. Observation deck was great. Ice caves were fun. Aurora film was superb !!
  • Really enjoyed our visit. Some visually stimulating things like the aurora display. Some physically stimulating like the ice cave. Some intellectually stimulating like the water story and displays. They have really thought about how to draw you into the stories and keep you interested.
