Vatnasafn, Snæfellsbær Reviews - Write a Review

  • Take the stairs on the east side to reach this on for and buy tickets at the volcano museum before climbing the stairs. We went there via the west side and did not have tickets so we only saw this from the outside through the windows. It looks like just a couple of water columns, which may be diverting for a very short while. Nice house though and nice views over the harbor

  • Would really have liked to see this, but there's a sign on the door saying you need to buy tickets from the Volcano Museum. Given that it was 20 min before closing, we weren't able to.

  • Beautiful installation, great tour and wondering views
