Staff was friendly, and there was a lot to learn about the lights. I liked the silent viewing room and the VR of the lights. We didn't get to see the real thing, so this was the next best thing.

Dropped in as our booked tour of the Northern Lights was cancelled due to weather conditions. The displays are good & the video is a great 2nd best (if you can't get to see the real thing).

Only went into the gift shop, but there is a show on the Northern Lights there as well. It's next to the Saga Museum, so it's worth checking out if you're in that area.

We went to visit this attraction which offers you an insight and a lot of information about the Northern lights. This is a payable attraction but was reasonably priced at around £10 Sterling, but obviously you pay by Icelandic Krona. Once inside there are lots...More

Smaller museum with reasonable entry price for Iceland. Enjoyed the VR, and large video, thought we would not see them for real but then lucked out and did see them for real! Nice photography, see the northern lights in ways most cannot photograph.

This museum is a bit expensive at $16.00 per person, but the film showing various images of the Northern Lights throughout Iceland makes it worthwhile. We sat in the dark mesmerized at the photography and marveling at the beauty of this amazing country.
