Experience life-size models of 23 different species of whales at Whales of Iceland! This educational and interactive museum is full of underwater sounds, interactive technology and educational information for all ages - a must do when in Reykjavik!
Enjoy this unique experience to walk through the world of whales, enjoying the soothing whale songs, ambient underwater lighting and beach-like floors. You can see just how big these amazing cetaceans actually are while you stand next to the models – and you are welcome to touch and explore each whale!
