The Settlement Exhibition


An open excavation where Viking ruins meet digital technology.

Just below ground in downtown Reykjavík, this open excavation uncovers the city's Viking Age history. Discovered during building work, then carefully excavated, these remnants of the past are the earliest evidence of human settlement in the city. Family friendly, including a children's activity area, this multimedia exhibition uses creative technology to immerse you in the Viking Age.
