Iceland has a long and incredibly interesting history linked with witchcraft and sorcery. From witch-hunts, folklore and practices the museum is full of stories and records that date back to around the time of the Vikings! The Museum is a non-profit organisation that aims to display exhibitions, publications and artefacts from throughout the centuries. Learn all about the people that were accused of witchcraft and how they were punished or visit the Sorcerers Cottage, a 17th Century turf house and the only of its kind in Iceland!
