Sorcery and Witchcraft Museum

From 1625-1685 the Westfjords were renowned for wizards, sorcerers and witch hunts, and Holmavik hosts a gleefully morbid exhibition on the ‘dark arts’ at the Museum of Icelandic Sorcery and Witchcraft.

This award-winning museum is by Hólmavík's central harbour. The museum has models, trinkets, a 30-minute audio tour, and a live demonstration on spell casting and even necropans, somethind that you should make sure you don't miss.

There is also an accompanying exhibit at the Sorcerer’s Cottage in Bjarnafjordur 20 minutes up the road in a turf hut reconstruction of a 20th century shepherd dwelling.

The museum is open everyday from 11:00-15:00 and again from 18:00-19:00. The museum also has a restaurant.
