Perlan Museum houses a unique exhibition called Wonders of Iceland. There, anyone can experience and learn to understand Iceland’s nature – through ground-breaking technology, science, photography and design. You see, feel and experience the forces of nature, volcanoes, geysers, glaciers, Icelandic ocean, seabirds and much more.
Perlan, one of Reykjavík‘s most iconic buildings, stands upon the capital‘s highest hill and therefore has an amazing view. The 360° Observation deck is excellent, with picture panels and various geological samples from around Reykjavík. Access is included in tickets to the Wonders of Iceland exhibition – but also sold separately.
