Very difficult to know bus rout from city center to correct stop at museum. Bus driver on #8 was rude and said he didn’t know where to stop. #8 from transerfer #3 at 11AM ON Thursday 9/09/2021. All other bus drivers were professional. I would highly recommend your museum tour , beautifully presented and informative. The entire experience was well worth the effort to get there and we will provide exact details to friends and family who visit and do not have a car.

Das ganze Gebäude mit der Kuppel ist super! Es gibt auf 4 Etagen Ausstellungen über die Natur. Vulkane, das Leben unter Wasser, Tier- und Pflanzenwelt. Mit Filmen, Exponaten und sogar einer Eishöhle mit -15 Grad. Auch die Nordlicht Vorführung war große Klasse!!! Außerdem hat man von der rundum Aussichtsterrasse einen super Blick auf die Stadt. Wer Reykjavik besucht sollte es nach Möglichkeit unbedingt besuchen, es lohnt sich wirklich : )

Upplevelsen av showen var bra. Däremot måste restaurangen skärpa till sig. Mitt barnbarn fick en allergisk chock efter att ha ätit pizza, där det bedyrades att det inte var någon slags nötter i maten. Det ledde till att vi hamnade på The Childrens Hospital, vilket gjorde besöket till en mycket dramatisk upplevelse. Tack och lov gick det bra. Vill varna andra besökare, så att inte någon ska behöva uppleva det vi gjorde.
