saga museum - 20% discount
Walk among the Vikings
Bringing the Viking age and Saga heroes very much to life, the Museum is brimming with lifelike figures in the clothing and settings of the day. More accessible than any history book, the key moments that have determined the fate of Icelanders have been intimately recreated, giving a compelling overview of how this nation has evolved over a thousand years.
A multilingual audio guide accompanies you, bringing to life the struggling beginnings of an Icelandic nation; the Viking settlement in 874, Leif the Lucky’s discovery of America, the founding of the world’s first parliament and the epic clan feuds that marked the settlement. The museum’s shop offers a wide selection of traditional Viking handiwork, clothing and beautiful local design – all fantastic souvenirs. And at the end of any tour, there is the chance to try on some proper Viking gear, which makes for a great photo!
