1238 The Battle of Iceland is an immersive exhibition that goes a step beyond the regular history museum. Welcoming to people of all ages the exhibition offers its guests to see and take part in history through virtual reality. Whether visitors have great or no interest in history, the exhibition invites its guests to experience history in a super modern and artful interactive installation.
We are open 11:00 – 16:00 every day.
The exhibition revolves around the most famous part of the Icelandic Sagas –
The Sturlung Era (1220 – 1264); the bloodiest and most violent era in Icelandic history.
Sturlunga recreated with interactive technology brings to life, in a fascinating vision, Iceland’s most dramatic clash of family clans and the fatal civil war that ended Iceland’s independence.
Virtual Reality is a big part of our exhibition. It incorporates cutting edge interactive technology that transports you into the past. There you can take part and experience one of Iceland’s most fearful battle; The battle of Örlygsstaðir first hand. That battle shaped Icelandic history and was the beginning of the end of Iceland’s independence.
