A place to improve your understanding of this part of Iceland. Good interactive displays to add to your knowledge as well as a cafe, toilets and a fine view of the valley. Good any day but exceptionally useful if the weather is poor!

The staff is very friendly there. In the center is a free museum included and a souvenir shop. You can also drink a coffee there.

This was an interesting and educational visit. The guide must have been used to groups of children though, because she talked to us like we were around 6 years old. There is also a shop with beautiful things.

There is a lot of local geological information in the centre itself as well as providing good tourist information about the local area. Well worth stopping at and finding out any thing you need to know as well as learning something about the region.
