Arbaer Museum

History comes to life at this open-air folk museum that is a re-created village, town square and farm consisting of more than 20 buildings including original turf-roofed farmhouses and a quaint church from 1842. During summer ‘villagers’ dressed in period costume carry out daily chores like spinning wool, milking cows and smoking meat. There are many exhibitions and events held at the museum which highlight specific periods in Reykjavik's history and these include craft days, vintage car displays and Christmas exhibitions.
