The volcano house showcases two films on the powerful volcanic eruptions in Iceland.

The film skilfully pictures the eruption on Heimaey on 23rd Janury 1973, the devastating eruption caused about 5000 of citizens to flee and be transported to Iceland another film documents the eruption in Eyafjallajokull. Along with what went during the eruption it also shows the geological history of Iceland and the science behind these eruptions. The same is done through some of the most classic photographs and a geographic exhibition containing samples of lava, ash and a collection of minerals. Some of these minerals and semi-precious stones can even be purchased!

All of that coupled with guided tours by some very enthusiastic guides ready to answer all your questions and some amazing food from the in house cafe to ponder on the fantastic thing called nature!

  • Nice little museum based around two short films about the volcanoes on Iceland. Staff were very helpful and friendly. The films take an hour combined and are shown back to back in their small cinema room. While you wait for the films to start (which was on the hour when I visited) there is a good collection of volcanic rocks which you are encouraged to pick up and look at, plus lots of information about volcanoes to geek out on.

  • Excellent (& free) little information center on volcanoes and the local geology in the area. It's worth popping in if your walking through the area. The attached restaurant has the best potatoes I had in Iceland. They come with the fish and chips and are sooooo good. They also have home made dips that are amazing.

  • Very cool little geological museum that will open your eyes to the fire side of the land of fire and ice. Free for the exhibition and you can catch one of the two films for half price.

  • Good, informative, filled an hour when it was raining. Cost approx £23 for 2 adults for 2 films. Free to walk around the store and see rocks, ash ect from the eruptions.

  • Saw a couple of volcano films in their cinema which was interesting, the shop itself though small had some interesting volcanic based products.
