Árbær Open Air Museum

Árbær Open Air Museum   Sunday August 27  13:00-16:00

A busy day at the farm
On Sunday August 27 the attention will be focused on the rural society of days gone by. In the minds of many, the old rural chores have a romantic feeling, but to feed and clothe people, was however never an easy task. Our Museum staff will provide guests with an insight into this lost world and guests will have an opportunity to assist in the household of the farm Árbær. In the past it was essential for every woman to know how to produce different kind of food using cow’s milk and use wool to make clothes. In the kitchen skyr – Icelandic traditional yoghurt – will be made as well as butter.

Light refreshments will be available as usual at Museum´s Café.
Everyone is welcome!
