What can I find at the Volcano Museum Iceland?
Firstly, we should warn you not to expect too much in terms of variety here, guys. But if you’re interested in geology or just volcanoes in general, this is definitely something that should be on your list! Also, the exhibition melds science with art, and shows us that the two can go hand in hand to make for some truly dazzling viewing content. It was started by volcanologist Haraldur Sigurðsson, who fell in love with the subject after studying geology at university.
When’s it Open?
This collection of curiosities is open from 10-5 pm through the summer, and 1-6 in the fall. Its employees suggest it’ll take around 1-2 hours to check everything out. Also, don’t forget to have a look at the Andy Warhol painting there, it’s his only landscape! Adults pay 1000 ISK, seniors 900, 15-18-year-olds 500, and under 15s get in free. More information on this is available on their website.
The museum is based in Adalgata, 2 hours north of Reykjavik. Depending on your tastes, it might not be worth all that driving if you’re staying in the capital at our very own Blue House. But if you’re passing through, it’s definitely worth a stop-off. This place is just one of many of Western Iceland’s lesser-known gems. Despite the country being host to a whole lot of museums, this one is unique and refreshing in its simplicity.
