You learn a lot about glaciers but there's not much else to do there. The is an ice bar but we didn't get to see it. They have a little bus that goes to town to pick you up and also brings you back.

Not an earth shattering experience, but it is a decent science museum. A bit expensive. Use the shuttle from town which runs hourly
