Imagine a full size whale right next to you? Well you have 23 man-made life size models at the Whales of Iceland Exhibition in the harbour area. The exhibition is full of sounds, visual treats and interactive technology – a must-do when in Reykjavik!
At the spectacular Whales of Iceland Exhibition in Reykjavik you will get to learn everything you need to know about every whale that has been found in Icelandic waters throughout the history. With 23 life size whale models and a lot of in-depth information about whales, interactive experiences, underwater footage of whales you are in for a BIG and unique experience. Walking through this wonder world with soothing whale sounds, ambient underwater lighting and beach-like floors truly makes you feel like you are deep under water exploring these gentle giants of the ocean.
In only a 15 minute walk from the old Reykjavik harbour you will get to the exhibition, in an old fishing industry area that has in recent years been renovated for museums, shops & restaurants. Once you have experienced all the exhibition has to offer you can finish with a freshly baked pastry & a cup of coffee in their café. If you just love whales and would like to take one home, you can of course get a sneaky souvenir on the way out.
The Whales of Iceland exhibition is such a great addition to our whale watching tours so if you are interested in combining both we recommend booking the discounted whale combo here.
