Volcano House

Wonders of the Volcano

The Volcano House includes a hands-on mineral exhibition featuring different mineral samples, such as lava from the 2014 eruption of Bárðabunga and ash from the 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajökull.

A documentary in English is screened every hour, on the hour, from 9:00 to 21:00. It focuses on some of the most famous eruptions of Iceland and covers the causes and effects of Icelandic volcanic activity in general. The show is also available in different languages by arrangement.

The Volcano House is fun and educational for people of all ages, and kids are especially welcome (free for 0-10 years old).

The Volcano House is a great stop on your museum day. After standing and reading for hours, it’s nice to sit down and watch a movie.

The Volcano House is a great late-night activity (the last show is at 21:00), a good replacement if your tour is cancelled, or if the weather is bad (it’s always nice and warm inside). Drop by anytime!
