  • So, like everything else, you'll be driving a long way to get here. What a delight. great food and great cappucino. Didn't spend much time with the museum, such as it is. Eat here.

  • Guys I am actually at Holmavik and seriously this museum is not worthy. It is a restaurant/bar/terrace+museum. Go to the terrace in a nice sunny day and enjoy life, but the money for the museum (900ISK) is not worth it Cant say the same of the views of this townd or the natural hot springs close by!
  • This place is so rad. I learned how to make pants of human skin that grant you eternal coins through its groin (the skin is even taken consensually!), runes to conjure the face of thieves, and how to summon ghosts with my morning coffee. Also, get the fish soup
  • I do not think the Musuem was worth the price. They gave me a small booklet for the English translations and the displays were more so scenes put together instead of actual artifacts.
  • The museum was definitely not worth the money. But that's life I guess.... Don't bother here. Lame museum
  • Cool place to check out old magic items
