Museum of Icelandic Sorcery & Witchcraft reviews

I do understand the idea behind the museum, but the design doesn't really work. There is not much written information, it is small, and the person at the counter was simply not welcoming. Hopefully... more »
Worth a visit if the subject matter interests you. Describes how mainland witchcraft trends influenced those in Iceland. Although the collection is small it was well researched and presented in many languages via books at the entrance. We noticed this museum during our research of Iceland before arrival but our tour materials convinced us to visit. Glad we did. The museum website was not as good as the museum itself.
Very interesting and informative! They have guidebooks available in multiple languages, and all of the displays are thoroughly explained. Be sure to visit the gift shop for unique items, as well as the restaurant for delicious food.
