Recently, Volcano House jumped to #15th place under Things to Do on Tripadvisor, making Volcano House the highest ranking private museum on the list!

This is consistent with recent policy changes, but we were surprised by how quickly they yielded results! Check out our profile to see all the nice reviews recently.

This is especially interesting when you consider that the higher-ranked attractions in the category include iconic sights such as Hallgrímskirkja, Harpa and the Sun Voyager. So it’s obvious that Volcano House is in the very highest class when it comes to museums and entertainment within Reykjavík.

Come by and visit us any time to get a first-hand understanding of why our guests are so happy; the FREE, “hands-on” exhibition is open from 09:30am to 10pm, and our informative Documentary cinema screens every hour on the hour from 10am to 9pm. (Some changes over Christmas – read more about those). So come on by any time – we’re waiting to welcome you with open arms.


Volcano House is a good, family friendly time, a good replacement when tours are cancelled due to weather (for instance Whale Watching Tours) – and we run late in the night in case your Northern Lights Tour doesn’t go ahead.

We look forward to seeing you here at Volcano House!
