The exhibition presents the battle against the harsh forces of nature and consequences of volcanic eruptions and gives an account of the pioneers in land reclamation.  Some light is shed on the general attitude and public disbelief in land reclamation during the early years and a review is presented of the 100 years history of soil conservation and land reclamation efforts in Iceland.
