This museum is centered around an actual Viking longhouse. As visitors walk along the wall displaying information detailing how the first settlers to Iceland survived, they can see ghostly figures hunting animals and doing other activities that bring it all alive. There are also buttons placed around a depiction of the longhouse which bring up information in various languages about life at that time and a wonderful video that shows exactly how the longhouse was originally constructed. One can even take a photo sitting next to a very realistic-looking Viking! All-in-all, one of the best museums in Reykjavik and worth spending some time in.
