  • It was not expensive but not so fun. It was more of an exhibition than a museum. It consisted of wax models which you viewed while you listened to the recorded tales of the Vikings of Iceland in headphones.

  • Excellent exhibit with great illustrations & just the right amount of detail conveyed in a way that most age groups will get something from it, without being too troubled by harsh details of Njáls Saga. The epic Njáls textile project underway and already dozens of yards long, is also worth a look, as is the adjacent local museum.
  • Well laid out time line of one of Icelands important Sagas. In English as well as Icelandic. Toilets. Lots of parking. Cafe on site.
  • Absolutely a great place for anyone interested in Brennunjálssaga. A museum dedicated to one of the best book ever written. Don't miss it.
  • Really inclusive telling of Njal's Saga, be prepared to read a lot and find out about a really exciting saga.
  • Neat experience! The entire building is a sort of museum / community center with different things going on, including a Viking hall. The main attraction was the Njal Saga exhibit, which is a great introduction into Icelandic sagas, Icelandic history of the time and then a breakdown of this specific saga. I was dubious but am so glad we stopped here!
