The museum features the archaeological remains of a Viking settlement, an open-air museum, a maritime museum, a photography museum, and pieces of modern landscape art. See some of Iceland's oldest relics (from 871 CE), and the tenth-century longhouse, parts of which are preserved in their original locations. The museum's interactive multimedia technology brings the ancient Viking ways to life at the settlement exhibit. The maritime museum includes fishermen's bunk beds, a mock dock, and a former coast guard vessel that rescued many ships' crews from sinking. Take a guided tour of the museum alongside original houses, a small farm, and through a village square.
