Really enjoyed visiting this property. The museum itself was closed. But the property and grounds were still very enjoyable and signage on the property explains the history of this place. There are also some great buildings and architecture on display here. A very nice place to stop and visit and enjoy the colorful and historical grounds.

I was very impressed with this museum. There was a lot to read, nicely displayed, and with an accompagnied app. Although there was a lot of information on display, the museum was spacious and has a calm setting. This museum gave me a better understanding of the surrounding buildings and places, and I certainly got the interest to familiarise myself with the writings of Snorri Sturluson, so I bought some books in the store, and I will think of the museum while reading them.

Excellent trip and well worth the effort. Went at Xmas time, snow, ice, wind, but not too difficult to drive. Well worth the effort.

We nerded out while preparing for this trip, including immersion into the Icelandic sagas. We knew that Snorre was the author of many, and thought this would be a fun side trip. It was. We learned much more about Snorre, including his role in recording the Norse myths. The place is both a museum and research centre and the knowledge and enthusiasm of the staff member were infectious. They have an app that guides you through the sites—it’s good when it works, which is inconsistently. Still, worth the visit.

We had fun stopping here and learning more about Snorri - a great Icelandic history story. We enjoyed walking the grounds and reading the placards with great information. Be sure to see Snorri’s pool and the door to the old passage! Wish the church had been open to see inside
