Volcano Exhibition-Eldfjallasafn in Stykkishólmur

A unique exhibition of international art and objects related to volcanic eruptions and their impact.

On 31. May 2009 we opened an introductory exhibition of Eldfjallasafn Volcano Museum in Stykkishólmur in west Iceland, and it was open to early September 2009. The museum includes works of art, old and new, showing volcanic eruptions, as well as objects, artifacts, volcanic rocks from the unique collection of professor Haraldur Sigurdsson who has carried out research on volcanoes world wide for forty years.

The exhibition is a preparation for the founding of Eldfjallasafn Volcano Museum in Stykkishólmur in the near future, where many aspects of volcanoes and their activity will be examined, both in terms of the arts, science, literature and environmental effects. Talks are given daily in the museum in English and Icelandic about volcanoes and their effects, as well as information on geology that are suitable for people with little or no previous knowledge in this field.
