Excellent documentaries. Show lasts 55 minutes and isn't expensive. Knowledgeable vulcanology post-graduate students are on hand to answer any questions. There's a small museum of rock types that you can touch. Well worth a visit!

Nice little museum based around two short films about the volcanoes on Iceland. Staff were very helpful and friendly. The films take an hour combined and are shown back to back in their small cinema room. While you wait for the films to start (which was on the hour when I visited) there is a good collection of volcanic rocks which you are encouraged to pick up and look at, plus lots of information about volcanoes to geek out on.
