This award-winning museum is by Hólmavík's inner harbour. Unlike the witches of the infamous Salem trials in New England, almost all of Iceland’s convicted witches were men.
Most of their occult practices were old Viking traditions or superstitions, but hidden grimoires (magic books) full of puzzling runic designs were proof enough for the local witch hunters (the area's elite) to burn around 20 souls (mostly peasants) at stake.
