Lovely and thrilling museum, all about trolls and different species from the tales of iceland. lovely with kids from a certain age, for very small kids it can be very scary, but alder kids love this.

Nice, friendly staff but the ghost stories are too long winded and the haunted rooms are pretty shabby. An okay thing to do on a snowy or rainy day. But don’t expect too much.

I went with my family to the small coastal town Stokkseyri. Having a stroll through both Stokkseyri and Icelands first capital, Eyrarbakki, gives you the sense the old days in Iceland. Many houses are old and make the atmosphere quite decent. The Ghost Center is...More
