The open air museum was founded to suffice the need to restore the old Reykjavik traditions. When the society saw the extreme modernisation and their culture losing its roots and the city council decided to establish a museum that preserves ‘Old Reykjavik’.

The visit takes you back in time with the array of houses, hay making, goldsmith’s workshop, printing press and everything that speaks out the traditional Icelandic living conditions.

Apart from the permanent set up there are quite a few exhibitions held at the museum. While we are at witnessing Icelandic living a stop at the cafe serving authentic Icelandic cuisine is definitely a must! To sum up the visit go by the petite gift shop with extremely friendly shop attendants to take back home a bit of the old world charm from Reykjavik.
