The building is absolutely beautiful, and the exhibits were well-mounted, fascinating, and straightforward to navigate. I enjoyed the planetarium/Northern Lights show a lot — a little whimsical for my taste, but beautifully done. The restaurant and cafe were really lovely. If I’d been there later in the day, I would have enjoyed a cocktail overlooking the city; the venue is perfectly situated for great views.

The whole building with the dome is awesome! There are exhibitions about nature on 4 floors. Volcanoes, underwater life, flora and fauna. With films, exhibits and even an ice cave with -15 degrees. The Northern Lights demonstration was also great!!! In addition, you have a great view of the city from the panoramic terrace. If you visit Reykjavik you should definitely visit it if possible, it's really worth it :)

The experience of the show was good. However, the restaurant needs to step up. My grandson got an allergic shock after eating pizza, where it was stated that there were no nuts in the food. As a result, we ended up at The Children's Hospital, which made the visit a very dramatic experience. Thank goodness it went well. Want to warn other visitors, so that no one will have to experience what we did.
