Exhibitions Art & History
The Northern Lights Center: Hunting and photographing the auroras.
The Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis are one of the most popular features in the country. The Aurora Museum offers an exhibition to learn about the Northern Lights. The visit is recommended to be completed on 30-45 minutes for the entire exhibition, but as soon as you enter the museum, you can stay as long as you want. The exhibition includes a variety of interactive areas for all ages.
The Northern Lights season in Iceland begins in early September and goes until March, but a lot of factors together will make it easier or more challenging to catch them. Statistics say October and March are the best months to see the auroras because the weather is more stable, and with less precipitation than other months.
The Aurora Museum offers an Aurora Forecast that can be checked by anyone in Iceland. They also have outstanding tours to see the Northern Lights, and other experiences such as glaciers, super jeep and visiting some cool places in the country. If you are interested in learning how to photograph the Northern Lights, don’t miss their tour on the Northern Lights Photographs.
