Perlan Museum is the cities biggest attraction and has Reykjavík's best observation platform, offering a 360 degree view of the city and surroundings. The Perlan boosts a gift shop, a café and a new and exciting restaurant, Ut i blainn, on the top floor of Perlan, underneath the huge glass dome. Learn more on perlanmuseum.is

The Perl is being developed as an exhibition hall for the natural history of Iceland, but the only show yet completed is the on glaciers. But that in itself is worth a visit! We went there with two boys aged 12 and 13 and they...More

This nice designed building (housing a restaurant on the second floor) on top a hill, must give a wonderful panoramic view. Unfortunately it is under renovation works until the end of 2017.

We walked to Perlan from our flat in Soleyjargata. It was a very pleasant walk and took us about 30 minutes. This is an excellent exhibition, including an ice cave experience and terrific displays/information on both glaciers and volcanoes - well worth the entrance fee....More

This museum is a great learning experience and fun too, both for the young ones and even more so for the adult. It's important to see how the glaciers are retreating due to the global warming.

A new restaurant opens this summer. It has it's own tripAdvisor site: "Ut i blainn". A cafe by Kaffitár will also open this summer.
