보르가네스에 들른다면 한번 들를 것을 추천합니다. 저는 스나이펠스지역으로 이동중 점심식사를 위해 '월터의 상상은 현실이 된다' 촬영지 였던 베이커리에서 스프세트를 먹었는데요 빵과 커피도 같이주니 좋았습니다. 주유도하고 중간 경유지로 괜찮은 것 같아요. 스티키스홀뮈르에서 자고 레이캬비크로 내려오는 길에 다시 주유를 하면서 세틀먼트센터에 들렸는데요. 이어폰을 ... read more »Borgarnes about once recommended to them. I'm moving into the area this fells or for lunch, ' Walter's imagination becomes reality ' location in the former bakery ate soup set to bread and coffee like the Zuni. Note and as a decent, I guess. Frosty Kiss sleeping in the Hall on the way, falling to the mwi Le oiling again in Reykjavik, while settlement heard at the Center. Earphones, and 1.5 floor is in the process of settling a Museum for 30 minutes a day for 30 minutes in the saga, and information about the history of breakfast was good for information about me, to saga in the middle of the skip boring.

I am not a great appreciator of museum/history lesson stuff. BUT, this one gave a nice overview for the beginning of our trip. I'm glad we went through it and learned about one of the sagas.
I absolutely loved the exhibitions! The saga exhibition is an amazing art installation! Not only you live through a bit of this famous saga, but you admire the beautiful artwork that tells the story. The Settlement exhibition is a must for anyone visiting Iceland to learn details of the first settlers. The museum shop is lovely (if a bit pricey). It's worth every penny, and I'd go back again when the new exhibition being developed is ready.
We had nice time a dinner in the Restaurant. The location ist really nice. Recommend. The Museum Shop sells nice stuff (cards, gloves, books etc.)
I had a wonderful dinner. Fish dishes are great, dessert amazing. Price is regular, you can check by yourself outside
Review is for the exhibition (didnt go to the restaurant) exhibition was very short and quite expensive (2500kr each). While there was an audioguide there wasnt much to see in the way of the actual.exhibits. whole thing stank of a moneygrab. Keep your money and go to the hot tubs instead.
This is a must for history lovers but absolute No No for those who don't like dark places. My son (5 years then) loved it to bits. He's been asking about this place ever since!
