Other reviewers have already aptly summarized much of what can be said about the information available at Snorrastofa--so, I won't repeat that. The historical information concerns not only Icelandic but also American history. Fascinating details about early Viking explorers discovering North America by way of...More

The museum contains a lot of information about Saga writer Snorri and his time, so it should be interesting for history geeks and fans of the man. Yet it contains very few objects, most of the interior is simply walls covered with text and pictures....More

Dear Pavel, thank you for your review. Unfortunally our exhibition hall sets us several limits beeing the church community house. On the top of our wishing list is a new hall and more artifacts to exhibit, hopefully our wish will come true in the future....More

Having just finished reading Saga Lands, we had to visit Snorri’s place in Iceland. Museum is informative and interesting, and the app that guides you to the outdoor ‘exhibits’ was useful. The grounds are beautiful, there is ample parking and the museum staff very helpful.

I teach Norse mythology to high school senior. How could I not visit the home of the author of the Prose Edda? If you love history, if you’re interested in mythology, you must visit.

Our second night on our drive around Iceland we stayed in Reykholt after a day around the Golden Circle. The museum was a short walk from the hotel. Excellent information on some Icelandic history particularly relative to the Icelandic saga writer and poet Snorri Sturluson.

Must do if you are interested at all in the sagas or Icelandic history, docent was very attentive and helpful, and the exhibit itself was well presented and engaging. They even have an app to take you around the historical sites outside!
