Perlan formally opened

Today the first exhibition in Perlan, Glaciers and Ice Cave, was formally opened. Instead of cutting a ribbon, we invited Mayor of Reykjavík, Dagur B. Eggertsson, to cut through a chunk of ice with a chainsaw. One can truly say that as the blocks of ice hit the floor, the show began with a bang. Next, guests were invited to explore the ice cave and experience the Icelandic glaciers in an exciting new way. In May 2018, Perlan will open the other exhibitions which together will make the largest nature exhibition in Iceland.

“Perlan is a wonderful building which now has gotten a worthy role,” said Mayor Dagur at the opening. “It is a great honour to participate in this project as a Mayor. A project that is coloured by the incredibly good collaboration between the designers of the exhibition and the academy.”

From 20 June, over 14.000 people have visited the museum, and we are thrilled to report that the reception has been amazingly positive.

Coolest place in Reykjavik – literally
Wow, just visited the brand new Wonders of Iceland exhibition in Perlan in Reykjavik. What a brilliant change!

Great experience
We as locals know a lot about glaciers but still we learned so much. Our kids 7, 9 and 13 years of age loved it. Highly recommended.

Wow what an experience!!!
Great experience and museum for the whole family. This is a brand new museum and very well done.
