About Whales Of Iceland, Reykjavik
Europe’s largest whale exhibition features twenty three life sized foam and steel models of the biggest creatures inhabiting the seas around Iceland. These include dolphins, beluga whales, narwhals, blue whales, sperm whales and orcas. There is also an interactive exhibit that explores the internal physiology of a whale. The exhibit also helps to organise whaling tours if you’re interested. Their VR exhibit plunges you into the marine world of these beasts. In short, this is an incredibly immersive exhibit. The establishment of this exhibit is at least a little political. It’s hoped that this will help move away from Iceland’s image as a whaling nation.

Whales Of Iceland, Reykjavik Reviews
We visited the Whales museum after being suggested from a local tourist geek! It was an incredible experience as it was the first time getting informed for the different whales species! We learned many stuff for the Willy, blue whales and we saw a real skeleton of a blue whale that was decorating the museum's cafe! The price was 21£ pp which was reasonable for getting an MP3 device that allow us to be self-guided in the area! If you love the nature, mammals and have a genuine curiosity for the sea life is a must place to visit!
A great place to take the kids. It is simple but very informative setup. There are headphones with a lot of information available in many languages. There is a free app that also has all the information. Easy to get around and you can keep a eye on the kids easy
If you are keen to expand your whale wisdom I would recommend a visit here whale you are in Iceland. Whale it's not the largest facility, it is whale organized. Whale you are here you can see many extraordinary exhibits. I wish I could have stayed longer but as you whale know, business calls.
Highly recommended. A must! Absolutely amazing museum full of life sized exhibits with plenty of interactive information. Even a play area for the little one.
A great interactive place to explore. Great for kids adults alike! Pretty inexpensive. Gift shop is nice as well
