Welcome to the Icelandic Museum of Sorcery and Witchcraft

Isn’t it about time you took the kids on a daytrip to the Museum of Sorcery and Witchcraft? Located in the small town of Hólmavík in Iceland, this museum combines historical fact with the ‘witchcraze’ in Iceland during the 17th Century. This quirky museum focuses on the country’s roots in mythology and the history of spells, necropants and witch burning (creepy stuff!). When you get hungry after learning about witchcraft and sorcery, the museum will serve you lunch, where a menu of seafood soup, mussels and waffles can be enjoyed.

There’s also a second part of the museum located in Bjarnafjördur fjord –28km away — called the Sorcerer’s Cottage.
