The Volcano Museum, situated in Iceland's captivating Myvatn region, integrates harmoniously with its natural surroundings. Its circular design is inspired by volcanic craters, hot springs, and lakes, seamlessly connecting indoor and outdoor spaces. Visitors can explore three distinct ring paths: a tranquil interior gallery, an observation deck on the exterior walkable roof, and a park loop trail with large-scale sculptures. The visually permeable façade emphasizes a timeless connection to the landscape while art pieces are displayed against Myvatn's stunning backdrop.
