This is a nice place to get a local Volcano Overview and see the impact of the most recent event. Lots of rocks and books to look over.

Went here and watched the cinema film about Iceland volcanoes. Really good. Kids were free and the exhibition before the film was enough to keep them busy and informed. Staff really helpful too. The cafe next door was bustling too.

We were surprised to find this museum open on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The 53 minutes of films were interesting as were the displays. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were even given free hot chocolate and sweeties!

Worthwhile to visit to hear about the 2010 volcano eruption that disrupted travel for days. There is an excellent video as well as pictures.

Bit disappointed by film show which was interesting but very expensive. Mainly a documentary about an eruption in the Westerman islands which may well be on youtube.
