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!
