Learn about Icelandic history and culture in the most fun and interactive way by purchasing an admission ticket for the Battle of Iceland Museum in Saudarkrokur. The museum is the perfect family-friendly place to explore for adults and children as young as six who enjoy learning with Virtual Reality (VR) technology.

This exciting educational experience begins in the lobby of the 1238 Battle of Iceland Museum in North Iceland, where the friendly staff will briefly introduce the museum and its exhibits. In addition, a guide will provide instructions for the VR experience. 

You will then proceed into the main exhibition room, where you will see a variety of artifacts from the Sturlung Era of Iceland and learn about the culture, customs, and battles of the time. Everyone will enjoy exploring these objects because the museum uses interactive technology and artistic techniques to make the experience more immersive and unique. 

Some major highlights include the digital replica of the Viking ship used in the Battle of Iceland, an interactive map of North Iceland showing the locations of all the significant battles that took place, and an exhibit on Icelandic folklore.

Moreover, you will see a variety of traditional Icelandic clothing, like the Icelandic wool sweater and the fur jacket, and learn about the different materials used to make them. To make the experience more fun, you can even dress up in these traditional clothes and take pictures or videos as you explore the museum.

You will also learn about weapons from Icelandic battles and their roles during the Iceland Civil War, such as swords, spears, and axes. In addition, the museum displays these weapons in one of its permanent exhibits.

One of the most thrilling experiences in the museum is the VR re-creation of the Battle of Orlygsstadir, where guests can participate in the battle. This immersive virtual reality experience guarantees a fun time for the whole family and visitors of all ages.

A museum guide is available to explain the different exhibits in detail and answer questions. Be sure to ask about Iceland in the 13th century and the various clans established at that time.

Soon after, you can return to your accommodation or explore more attractions in North Iceland. This museum tour doesn’t include a pick-up, so visitors must arrange their transportation.
