Please note this museum is now permanently closed. Instead, we suggest a visit to the LAVA Center in South Iceland.
Discover Iceland’s fiery secrets at the Volcano Museum (Eldfjallasafn) in Stykkisholmur! The dynamic exhibition includes objects, artifacts, volcanic rocks samples and even works of art. The exhibition is curated by renowned volcanologist Haraldur Sigurdsson. He has been studying and teaching about the explosive nature of volcanoes all over the world for over forty years.
The museum examines many aspects of volcanoes and their activity, both in terms of the arts, science, literature and environmental effects. You don’t need to be a geologist to enjoy this fascinating museum; you can learn about geology in a fun way.
