This unique museum was founded in 1957 in order to give visitors a tangible sense of Reykjavík’s past. It comprises a village-like collection of over twenty “homes,” each of which is a separate exhibition. Visitors learn how Reykjavík developed from a few scattered farms into the capital of Iceland.
September – May, daily guided tours only at 13:00.
Icelandic Saga & Heritage Association (ISHA) was founded in 2006 (then named Iceland Saga Trail Association). It is a forum for collaboration for those involved in heritage tourism in Iceland, especially regarding publicity, quality and professional standards.
