It was informative but not very involving. A lot of rock specimens and a very short video presentation. Not much else. Too expensive for what you received. Mainly a shop in which to buy things and book a tour.More

The film documents the many recent volcanic events in Iceland. The film is quite long. WE made the mistake of going when we were still jet lagged and dozed off several times. Be rested before you go!
