The Settlement Exhibition

A Family Friendly Museum

At The Settlement Exhibition in Aðalstræti visitors can experience the settlement of Iceland in late 9th century through two remarkable exhibitions.

The Settlement Exhibition revolves around an excavated site, the actual remains of a Viking Age longhouse that have been preserved in situ. The exhibition gives an invaluable insight into the life and times of the first people to inhabit the Reykjavík area and the ways in which they adapted to their new environment. The exhibition is founded on archaeological and other scientific research and introduces visitors to the latest facts and interpretations forwarded by a range of experts who have concentrated on this period of our history.

The exhibition is suitable for all ages and includes an activity center for children. Audio guides are available in many languages.
