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
Not a huge exhibit, but very personal. The ability to stand next to life size replicas gives a very intimate experience that you don’t get from museum displays. They have an audio guide (mp3 + headphones in multiple languages) that was very informative, with many uncommonly know facts. I took my teenage son there (who is extremely knowledgeable on ocean mammals) and he was impressed. Took about 1 hour to complete. Added bonus: you are allowed to touch all the whale models.
Pretty expensive but very informative. The whale displays are really cool but unfortunately most of the information pads weren't working the day I went. Luckily they also have the audio tour. The cafe was nice as well! Recommend for kids and people who really like whales.
we are a family of whale lovers. And we find this museum fantastic. The presentation is extremely tasteful and the audio guide very informative. We would like to download it and listen to it at home! We found out so many things we didn’t know before. Highly recommend!
This museum features life-sized models of whale species around Iceland. The exhibition is jam-packed with information and interactive displays. Make sure to pick up the audio guide to get the full experience.
A very unique experience given in a very informative manner. Lots of information to take in and a great perspective view of the whales of the area. Life size models and in depth explanations of the whales were very memorable, along with a well designed layout, meaning you can literally put a hand inside the models for that real life comparison. The staff were very helpful, the museum has lots of car parking in front and is also only a 15 minute walk from the centre of Reykjavik.
