Whales Of Iceland - Review
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
Stunning exhibition with life-size whale models. Nice alternative for whale watching. Tour has an mp3-player to guide you through different whales. Tour itself is nothing that special, but there are nice additions, such as mapped story of a travelling whale and VR-experience. Worth the price in my opinion.
Cute and i formative exhibition of whales. Fun for both adults and children. You really get the scope of how big the whales are in real life. The audio guided tour is great and available in multiple languages.
It is very over priced. The crew is very very friendly. But the exhibition is pretty simple. There are limited scientific facts and fun stories provided via an audio guide. It could have been a much richer and educational experience if more multimedia methods were included. Don't waste your money.
A slightly odd place - big warehouse sized space housing life-sized models of a large number of whales with a digital terminal next to each one providing information about them. Sounds odd but its a strangely captivating place and well worth a visit. Very educational for children and adults alike.
An extremely well formed exhibit, that consists of many life-sized whale figures placed around a hangar area: the audio guide provided is extremely informative. if you have an hour or so, this is a great way to learn. suitable for all ages, this fosters a great deal of sympathy for what whales have been subject to over the years. within the hangar there is a small cafe, and a well-stocked gift shop.
