Interesting film in planetarium Good experience in ice grotto. And a good view 360° on clear day all over Reykiavik more »
Great place to visit. Really good show about the Arora and great info and displays about Iceland. Loved the ice tunnel. Lovely meal in the cafe too. All quite pricey, but isn’t everything!? more »
The ice cave is pretty good. It's the actual ice unlike the other exhibits here which are fake and just showing videos on TV. I suggest get the ticket only for the ice cave and enjoy. Even though the ice cave is man made, they've used tons of ice and made a pretty big cave.
Way more interesting than I expected. The exhibits are informative and very well done. A must see.
