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!

Before visiting the east part of Vatnajökull national park you should differently make a stop at Snæfellsstofa. They have a super informative exhibition and I can say that the visitor center is a good representation of the wonderful national park. The rangers there were very friendly. When we came they had just finished a special program for kids who seemed really happy. And the most important thing: It was environmentally friendly, they recycle everything and didn't have reusable cups.

Unexpected pleasure. We were just going to check inside for a moment, but we were in more than an hour - could be a lot longer.

Stopped in with friends who were showing us the area. Was great to have a center that was able to teach a bit more about Iceland and help us to be more informed about the country and area that we are traveling in. The staff was very helpful and helped to direct us to the various displays available in the center.
