Reykjavik's open air museum, where you can stroll through the past and experience the way we lived.
Fun, fascinating and full of surprises, this living museum takes you on a journey through time. Reykjavík's early history is preserved in a series of lovingly-restored homes, where you'll encounter costumed guides, grazing animals and traditional crafts. Exhibitions, demonstrations and tours reveal how Reykjavík came to life, from a few scattered farms to a vibrant capital city.
A free entrance to the museum is included in the Reykjavík City Card.
