,,Síðar kom fjandinn til Sæmundar og gjörði kontrakt við hann so látandi, að ef Sæmundur gæti falizt fyrir sér í þrjár nætur skyldi hann vera frí, en annars skyldi hann vera sín eign.“

sorcery museum

We collect knowledge about the history of Icelandic sorcery and witchcraft. 

We receive visitors from all over the world to the little town of Hólmavík and explain our forefather's means of survival. 

We research.

We give information about what Hólmavík and the Strandir area have to offer and have a cozy restaurant for hungry travellers. 

Our online gift shop offers an extensive collection of books on history and methods of Icelandic witchcraft, as well as printed grimoires published by the museum and other reasearch-based material. Also, various artwork related to this Icelandic cultural heritage.
