Small museum, but very good exhibits and artwork. Attendant also helped us with areas to explore on the peninsula.

One man created this museum : a famous volcanologist. Great collection of volcano art and rocks. A curator gives a nice lecture on the collection. A must see in iceland. I was with a tour group.
