The Museum of Prophecies

The exhibition focuses on Þórdís the fortune-teller, the first named inhabitant of Skagaströnd, who lived in the area in the late 10th century. A painted tapestry tells her story, guiding visitors through the exhibition, which features all kinds of interesting information about prophecies and fortune telling. Visitors can have their fortunes told and their palms read upon request. Children can examine Þórdís’s gold chest where various interesting things are hidden.
