We didn't check out all that was offered but they had clean bathrooms open to the public. Cute small gift shop but very expensive. Very amazing architecture.

Interesting structure. Good for photos. Also has some shops with expensive albeit quality stuff and souveirs, apart from it exhibits and performances. Can be visited while walking along the Reykyavik waterfront.

What is the cost to tour the Harpa? Should we purchase tickets prior to the date of the tour or are they readily available on the day of the tour? Travel date is in July. Thank you. Carmelynn
