A Cinema and a Geological Exhibition in the Centre of Reykjavik, located close to the Old Harbour. They present two unique documentaries on two of the most powerful eruptions in Iceland over the last 40 years.
The first is about the eruption on the Westman Islands, beginning after midnight on the 23rd of January 1973. That night, nearly 5,000 people who lived on the island had to flee in boats to get to the mainland.
The other film shows Iceland as one of the youngest volcanic islands on Earth and documents the eruption in Eyafjallajökull 2010. This massive eruption caused numerous air flights to cancel all over world and millions of people were stranded. The films have a gripping Emmy-nominated footage and riveting images, allowing you to experience those momentous eruptions from the comfort of our in-house cinema.
The Geological Exhibition gives an overview of Iceland’s geological history and volcanic system. A large collection of semi-precious rocks and minerals are on a display and ash and lava, you may touch.
