Obscura Day 2015: An Obscura Day Invocation at the Museum of Icelandic Sorcery and Witchcraft

Staves, storm-calling, spell-casting and a very special Obscura Day invocation!

Join us for a special evil-ridding invocation lead by a traditional Icelandic sorcerer.

The Museum of Icelandic Sorcery & Witchcraft focuses on presenting the elaborate and esoteric spells and rituals that are native to the country. The collection features a number of artfully displayed artifacts and displays such as rune-carved pieces of wood, animal skulls, magical staves and the museum's notorious "necropants", a horrifying pair of leggings made from the dried skin of a man from the waist down.

This Obscura Day, the museum has invited an Icelandic sorcerer to lead us in a special invocation at the museum, demonstrating chants that have traditionally been used to ward off evil spirits and send ghosts back to where they belong.

Saturday, May 30; 3:30 - 4:00pm
Cost: 900 ISK (~7 USD)
Ticket cost covers admission to the museum as well as the invocation ceremony
