At the Museum in Hólmavík people learn about those involved in the witch-hunt: the prosecutors and the prosecuted, and their alleged crimes.

The Museum of Sorcery & Witchcraft also explains the folklore connected to magic, and visitors can learn how to make themselves invisible, how to create extra money, how to know who has stolen from you and how to deal with ghosts. Guests at the museum can even take part in a special ceremony: helping a local sorcerer to scare away ghosts and evil spirits, which for many visitors is the highlight of their stay in Iceland.
