History comes alive

To recreate these historical moments in the most authentic way, life-like replicas of historical Icelandic figures have been created, based on descriptions found in the Viking sagas and chronicles.


Clothing, weapons and everyday objects were constructed using traditional methods passed down through the ages. The weapons were specially crafted and the wool and linen articles dyed by hand.

All wooden artifacts have been treated in a way that both enhances their appearance and make them look genuinely old.


Thats how we try to give visitors a view into Icelanders ways of living in the past.
