Whales of Iceland is an exhibit in Reykjavík, and the biggest whale exhibition in the world.

The museum has 23 life sized models of the species of whale, dolphin and porpoise that frequent Iceland’s waters, as well as many interactive stands and videos where you can learn about their biology, behaviour and conservation.

The Whales of Iceland can be found at Fiskilóð 23-25, near Reykjavík’s Old Harbour. Entrance is 2,900 ISK for adults, 1,500 ISK for children aged 7-15, and free for those under 7. A Reykjavík City Card will take 30% off of your admission.
