The Settlement Exhibition

The Settlement Exhibition

The Settlement Exhibition, a museum in the middle of Reykjavik, displays the settlement of Reykjavik, of its first inhabitants, their lives, important houses as scholars believe it to be.

The focus of the exhibition is the remains of a hall from the Settlement Age which was found and dug up in 2001. A high tech multimedia table explains how the full hall might have looked, in 3D.
