Enjoy the special Christmas programme of events at the Árbær Open Air Museum
Tomorrow (Sunday, 17 December) is the last day to enjoy the special Christmas programme of events at the Árbær Open Air Museum! The museum is one of a kind featuring a delightful collection of vintage houses, complete with turf farm and church. It’s a lovely destination any time of the year, but for those who wish to indulge in some traditional Icelandic Yuletide activities, this is the time to go. We visited last week with the whole family and will be going again tomorrow. The programme starts at 1 pm and finishes at 5 pm with all sorts of fabulous activities and festive entertainment on offer such as making traditional Icelandic Leaf Bread, spinning yarn, candle making and printing Christmas cards.
Don’t miss the main events!
At 2 pm there will be a lovely Christmas service at the old church with the turf roof
At 3 pm everyone gathers to sing and dance around the Christmas tree
Between 2 & 4 pm you’ll get to meet (and be thoroughly entertained by) those naughty Icelandic Yule Lads!
For more details visit the official Árbær Open Air Museum website. Getting there: Take bus number 12 from the Hlemmur bus terminal in the city centre.
