Rainbow Kite Workshop

03.08.2022 X

Diversity will be celebrated on Sunday, August 7 in Árbær Open Air Museum where guests will be invited to take part in creating kites in all colours of the rainbow.


The workshop is intended for children and their families. Limited number, registration is by phone: (+354) 411 6320. Participation is free for children but adults pay admission to the museum.

Materials and instruction will be offered and hopefully, the wind will blow enough for kite builders to run around the fields with their kites. Let´s find the beauty of freedom and being ourselves!

Up in the loft at the original Árbær farmhouse building tasty Icelandic ‘Lummur’ pancakes will be cooked as the blacksmith hammers the iron at the smithy. In Þingholtsstræti house a goldsmith will be working.

Sheep and horses are grazing in the pasture, and settlement hens are roaming around the museum area. Freshly brewed coffee and newly baked goods are on offer in the museum café. The convenience store´s shelves are brimming with sweets and delicious ice cream is available in the museum shop.

The event programme is from 13:00-16:00, but the museum is open daily in the summer from 10:00-17:00.
