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 Sorcery and Witchcraft.

The museum has models, trinkets, a 30-minute audio tour, and a live demonstration on spell casting. There is also an accompanying exhibit at the Sorcerer’s Cottage in Bjarnafjordur 20 minutes up the road in a turf hut reconstructed of a 20th century shepherd dwelling.
