When you visit Iceland, it is a must to increase your knowledge of geologic phenomena. This is what you have at Volcano House. You will learn how Iceland live with these volcanoes that erupt every 5 years in average.

We enjoyed the films about volcanic eruptions, and also learnt a lot from the exhibits. We thought we would come back here and buy presents before we left, as there were several reasonable and interesting items on sale. But we ran out of spare money!...More

Explanations from a geologist before the movie stars (features the recent 3 major eruptions). We thought learning a bit more about the proess of volcano formation snd eruption, but the movie shows only how the people deal with eruptions at home.

We were so glad we had seen this film at the start of our time in Iceland, as it helped us understand more of its volcanic history. They have eruptions every 5 years or so! It showed actual footage from an eruption in the 70s,...More

Volcano House is a good place to visit that does not require lots of time. You can wander around a small museum (exhibit), touch the rocks, look through magnifying glasses, and read about past volcano erruptions. The documentary shown in the theater is very good...More

We saw 2 documentaries on the volcanic eruptions in Iceland and both were shot very well and the narration was excellent.

We saw two interesting films about volcano eruptions totaling 60 min. Not splashy productions but documentaries featuring droney-voiced narrators who will definitely put you to sleep if you're at all tired or jet-lagged. Price is a bit high for the experience.

We found the hour-long documentary to be interesting and educational (though it may be a bit "heavy" for the very young). We also enjoyed looking at the minerals etc. on display and found it refreshing that the signs were actively encouraging us to touch!!!
