Árbaer Open Air Museum (Árbaejarsafn) Tours

Árbaer Open Air Museum (Árbaejarsafn)

Quaint old buildings have been uprooted from their original sites and rebuilt at the Árbaer Open Air Museum (Árbaejarsafn), a kind of zoo for houses, 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) from the city centre. Alongside the 19th century homes are a turf-roofed church, and various stables, smithies, barns and boathouses - all very picturesque. The museum opened in 1957 - before that the place was a working farm - and the aim is to give an insight into the way Icelanders once lived. 

There are summer arts-and-crafts demonstrations including traditional handcrafts, hay-making and animals to see. There is also a cafe. The farm is a great place for kids to let off steam.
