The weather here can definitely be unpredictable at times, that is for sure. Fortunately, it is always warm and cozy here at the museum, so we are always open. :)
It is always good to hear that visitors of many ages were able to enjoy and engage with the exhibition, and also that you enjoyed our film! Did you know, that all of that footage was actually captured just here in Iceland? Our photography team is busy in the winter months chasing down the lights, all over the country. They´ve captured quite a few, so far!
It is always encouraging to know that their work is being enjoyed.
Thank you for stopping by!

The forecast has definitely been difficult these past few days, so it is good that you found us. (Though as we are one of the few things open until 21:00, we are a good evening activity as well!)
I am happy to hear that you enjoyed our staff and the exhibition, the virtual reality is really something else isn´t it? Use of the headsets is always free to museum visitors, but it is part of the permanent exhibition, and so it is included as a part of your admission. We are glad that you got to try them out- as they really are the next best thing to seeing the lights in person.
Thanks for stopping by!
That is high praise coming from an educator! And I will have to agree with you, we are an unusual and unique little place, completely owned, created, and run by some really big fans of the lights!
We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us, and we loved seeing what photos you chose to capture while you visited. (That pin map is one of our most instagrammed subjects! We had to build it a new frame just to hold up the weight. We love seeing where everyone is traveling from.)
The folklore section is a favorite among our staff. Being in the presence of such an incredible phenomenon can truly make one understand how some of those tales came about. It is important to remember those stories, as they are such a central part of the cultures that they hail from. We are glad that you enjoyed them as much as we do. :)
This is excellent to hear! Our greatest goal is to send you home having learned a new thing. (We are also glad to hear that you made good use of the yoga mats, as that is one of our favorite activities.) There is nothing quite like yoga under the northern lights, and then coffee and tea in the lounge after!
Ah yes, some of the excursions can start out pretty late. Depending on what time of year you visit, sometimes we have to get going pretty far into the night to get the best darkness for visibility. Our light availability changes pretty quickly throughout the season, however, so you would be surprised how early you can go out during midwinter! You will have to visit again in winter to see, we get some lovely snow as well.
Either way, we are happy that you decided to give us a try, as our auroras are visible a bit before the typical hour. :) I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your time here, and we thank you for letting us know how it went.
