It's nice. I liked their stories from around the world very much, and it was quite informative but there's only so much to learn about the Aurora. It's difficult to build a museum based upon one single natural phenomenon, that isn't so complicated. Hard to elaborate on that. I believe that overall it's worth a visit as the views they give, including the VR are nice, the postcards at the shop are great and it did look like they spent some time and effort putting this museum together but it's not a must see.
Interesting place to see some beautiful footage of the Northern Lights. They have a store which sells all sorts of related goods. I believe you can also book a lights tour with them. They serve complimentary hot chocolate and coffee which is nice. Don't think you'd spend more than an hour there.
Not worth paying for this. If you were to book tours from here then you will get free ticket.. Then it's worth it. Don't pay for this you will be disappointed.
If you want to book a northern light tour this is the place to go. The staff is super nice and the exhibition is interesting too.
Could've given this a miss--most helpful was the online map at the end detailing at which time & day the aurora is most easily sighted that week. It's more fun for the kids & we didn't have anyone under the age of 24 in my group. The virtual reality is fun though--you feel surrounded by the lights! And when else are you going to go to an aurora borealis museum right?
Very nice experience. There's is a great short movie explaining the Aurora and then a nice room to chill out in where one wall has the Aurora projected on it. They have two large bean bags, chairs and benches to chill out on so if you can't make it out if the city to see the Aurora you can have a mini experience in town. This place is beside the saga museum and both of these places are discounted if you but the city card.
An inexpensive way to spend time in Reykjavik. Obviously it’s no substitute for the real northern lights but if you missed the chance to see it on your trip then this is a nice alternative. Lots of detail for people who want to learn the specifics plus interactive displays and a dark cinema viewing room which is really relaxing. At the end you can try the VR experience and mark your city with a pin on the big world map
My friend and I had some time to kill while in Reykjavik after finishing a 9 day road trip around the ring road. We were disappointed that we didn’t have the chance to see the northern lights while on our trip. This museum made up for that!!!! It is so worth the money. You learn so much about how the lights come to be and get to lay in a room while watching a video of recordings of the northern lights. It was SO relaxing. We highly recommend this museum!!!
Fun place with interactive displays. Cool learning about the cells interpretations from different cultures. The best part was the movie dark room. So comfortable that I wanted to just sleep in there.
Modern, educational, and entertaining little museum. Free coffee/tea is a plus. Virtual reality tour is fun. 1500kr per person.
