This is Reykjavík’s open-air museum, where you can stroll through the past and experience the way Icelanders 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.
Árbær Open Air Museum is part of Reykjavík City Museum – one museum in five unique places.
