  • Completely unnecessary, Iceland is at the door, there are the incredible nature and the sights to be found. The only interesting thing would be the unrestricted view of the whole city from above, all that is offered in the building is actually money-making.

  • The ice cave is pretty good. It's the actual ice unlike the other exhibits here which are fake and just showing videos on TV. I suggest get the ticket only for the ice cave and enjoy. Even though the ice cave is man made, they've used tons of ice and made a pretty big cave.
  • Way more interesting than I expected. The exhibits are informative and very well done. A must see.
