Museum of Sorcery & Witchcraft

We tell tales of magic. 

The museum is open all year. 

“That autumn [1652] an evil spirit or a ghost caused disturbances in Trékyllisvík. Often during the same day and especially in the church, the spirit would suddenly go down people’s throats causing belching and a feeling of overfill, but afterward they felt nothing.”
