We were staying at an Air B&B a couple blocks away - went down to the Valhalla restaurant for a burger and a beer.......both were great! The staff is very friendly and we spent some time throwing axes at a target just to work off the french fries......great fun!
They recently re-opened. The saga exhibit was well-done. It’s a fascinating and dramatic story. The restaurant inside is designed like a Viking meeting hall. The smoked ribs and burgers were delicious and the staff was very friendly. This is a worthwhile stop along the ring road.
Really friendly welcome here and whilst we weren’t sure what to expect from the outside this was well worth the visit. Saga museum and tapestry well worth seeing but it was the Valhalla bar and grill was really cool and the BBQ burger was fantastic.
I've been to three saga museums. This one was the best. It also was by far the cheapest; it's free. I thought I should give them something so I tried their barbecue ribs at their restaurant.
This was a very nice stop! The museum explains a lot about Viking history and then tells the entire Njál saga. The storytelling is enhanced very well by drawings of the characters and key scenes and with artefacts like weapons and clothing. Explanations are written in Icelandic, English and also German. And also there is no admittance fee. You can feel that the curators put a lot of heart into the upgraded version of the museum, we loved it so a definite recommendation!
