Reykjavik 871 2 Settlement Museum - Review

The name refers to the years 871, plus or minus two years, which is the approximate date of the oldest settlement in Reykjavik. Found in an excavation at Adalstraeti, the settlement location is now the main Viking Age exhibition of the city. The primary attraction is a 10th century longhouse, supplemented by other relics found from the settlement age. Using cutting edge technology to create immersive interactive exhibits, the panoramically laid out exhibit is an incredibly satisfying experience. Make sure you walk anti-clockwise around the hall for the correct sequence of narrative. You’ll come away with an insightful understanding of the lifestyle and culture of those times.

  • Very interesting exhibit. Spent quite a bit of time going through everything. Take your time and read. Its well worth the information.

  • Visit An Old Viking Age House The Settlement Exhibition is the original Reykjavik farmstead. It was found during downtown construction work in 2001. I highly recommend the guided tour at 11:00 AM (Monday through Friday, during the summer months). You can use the Reykjavik City Card (purchased at your hotel or the city Tourist Information office). The exhibits are modern, informative and interactive.

  • Fascinating. Very, very interesting. I learned lots about the early history of Iceland that we never learned in school. The exhibits are very good & for the most part creative. Loved it! Nice little museum shop. Friendly staff! Free entry with purchase of your Reykjavik City card. Done in about 1 hour. 😀

  • This was a nice exhibition. Like most of the city museums it was small and probably best viewed as part of the museum card offer. The museum is underground and has a nice information tour with multimedia displays, all circling the foundations of (apparently) the oldest house in Reykjavik.

  • If you want to know about Iceland, this museum is a must. Very well done exhibits including model of a settlement and a prehistoric "house". Be prepared to spend a couple of hours. Informative and educational.
