We are hunters of an elusive subject called Aurora Borealis. We created Aurora Reykjavik to share our passion and knowledge about the most unique natural phenomenon in the world.
This museum was the dream of four people, and the wonders here are the work of many. We have travelled the entire world chasing the light, but our adventures have always brought us home.
Aurora Reykjavík is both the start and the result of an endless fascination.
Come in, and see what we have seen.
Fulfil your dream and join us on a Northern Lights excursion
The Northern Lights exhibition in Reykjavik is your first stop when you want to experience the Aurora Borealis in Iceland.
Take a walk through history and learn how people and cultures around the world saw the Northern Lights via legends and myths connected to this amazing phenomenon. In our multimedia exhibition we offer interactive displays as well as a specially equipped ‘photo booth’ where you can learn how to adjust your camera’s settings should you want to try your hand at capturing the auroras yourself.
