We visited with our 2 young children who loved it! You each have your own audio set which talks about different folk stories, and the history of elves, as you move through different rooms in the museum. It is quite dark inside, a bit like...More

Dear, thank you so much for your great review! Your opinion is very important for us! Kind regards, Elves and Ghosts Museum
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

Thank you dear friend for positive input on your visit at the museum!
We want people to learn about the culture that has sprung out from the nature around us, witch has helped making and creating these amazing and to us important stories,

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.

Don't go out of your way to go there, only stop by if you go to the restaurant.
