Traditional Haymaking at Árbær Open Air Museum

The annual annual hay making day will be held at the Árbær Open Air Museum on Sunday 10 July starting at 13:00.

Visitors can observe and participate in old traditional haymaking at the museum, provided that the weather remains dry. The old haymaking methods were still being practised as late as the 1960s in many parts of Iceland, but today the machines have taken over. Participating in traditional haymaking is not only interesting but also a lot of fun.

Make sure to stop at Dillon’s Café for a cup of coffee and freshly baked pastries before you leave.
