About twenty quaint old buildings have been transported from their original sites to open-air Árbæjarsafn, 4km east of the city centre beyond Laugardalur. Alongside 19th-century homes are a turf-roofed church and various stables, smithies, barns and boathouses – all very picturesque. There are summer arts-and-crafts demonstrations and domestic animals, and it’s a great place for kids to let off steam. Tickets also provide entry to Reykjavík 871 +/-2 .
