Perlan Museum

In the heart of Reykjavík, Öskjuhlíð Hill rises 61 metres above sea level. On the top of the hill stands Perlan, one of the most visited attractions in Iceland. A landmark building composed of an immense glass dome that sits on six hot water tanks. Perlan was first opened to the public in June 1991 and became the home of the largest nature exhibition in Iceland in 2017. At Perlan’s top floor, you can enjoy a cup of coffee or a delicious meal with spectacular views from every seat. You also find Rammagerðin, one of Iceland’s oldest gift stores, offering Icelandic design.
