This museum is so far my favourite thing in Iceland - and believe me I love Iceland. I made a special trip as I knew I must see this museum (I couldnt visit my first drive past but terrible weather meant I unexpectedly came back this way.) The *wonderful* lady who owns it knew I hadn't managed to visit on my earlier drive past, opened it specially for me. She told me all about the fortune telling styles she and her colleagues used in specially and beautifully designed rooms (get a reading if you get the chance, I couldnt as the storm was fast on my heels and I needed to keep driving, I know I will regret it until I can come back!) I heard the stories of the original seer and the methods used by her and other Icelandic practitioners. A rare female icon of the sagas. The proprietor was funny and informative and I wish I had been able to spend much more time there. It's in a gorgeous nook of Iceland, watch out for key baring ravens and give finding the lost treasure a try :).

My fiancé and I stopped by here on our trip in Northern Iceland. We loved learning about Þórdís and having our fortunes told. This has a nice gift shop. Highly recommend going to this place, even if it is a little off the beaten path.

My friends and I visited this cafe/museum while on our way to NES, an artist residency in Skagastrond. I almost feel like we went to Skagastrond almost as much for this museum and cafe. I met an incredibly kind Icelandic woman who read my palm, something I don't usually do. It was part of a "cocktail" of a three-part reading. She didn't look into the future so much as tell me some things about myself. I found myself nodding the entire time. Afterwards, I had a cold soft drink called Bitter Lemon with my friends who had tea. This was absolutely one of my highlights here in Iceland. I will always remember Sigrun, the woman who read my palm. Again, I am usually not in favor of such things, but I am glad she did. She is a the great granddaughter of Guðrún frá Lundi, an accomplished Icelandic author circa 1960s of books for women. Talk about a small world in Iceland...she remember seeing me about three weeks ago in Sauðárkrókur while visiting a tannery there. An exhibit about her great grandmother is in the town's former police station. Please check this place out and that place out while you're in Iceland this summer.
