If your answer is yes, then you should visit the Elves museum (and also the nearby ghost museum - that's the more scary part). There you can find stories about the elves and also about how the northern lights are working and what's their cultural...More

I'm not sure I can find anything good to say about this place. My immediate words after we left were, "I want the last hour of my life back." The ghost part stunk so bad I had to walk around with my scarf over my...More

We have travelled all round Iceland and seen some fantastic sights and visited some wonderful musuems. Unfortunately this is not one of them. Firstly, the audio guides simply don't work. There were four of us and not one of them worked properly. The exhibits are...More

Icelandic wonders is a nice and creative introduction to the world of trolls, giants and elves, and thus to the heart of Icelandic mythology. Cool props, interesting stories and a very welcoming staff. Have a look.

We were excited to see this big location for the possibility of shopping. But upon entering were sadly disappointed by the basic things we found. Don't go out of your way to go there, only stop by if you go to the restaurant.
