The Turf House Museum
The Icelandic Turf House: the Jewel of Arctic Architecture. The house that kept Icelanders alive and nurtured their culture through the centuries. How they were built, how they were lived in, their origin and cultural context, contemporary significance, subtlety and beauty. Collection of original houses and in detail exhibitions. Only 60 km from the centre of Reykjavik, and just minutes off the Golden Circle. A unique place where nature is part of the house.
