The Museum Church

The Museum Church

The church in the Árbær Open Air Museum is of a type common throughout the country in the 19th century. It originated on the farm Silfrastaðir in Skagafjörður, where turf-built church was erected in 1842. In 1896 it was dismantled and a new church erected in its place. Timber from the old church was used to build an addition to the farmhouse, a living room/bedroom used until 1950. The addition was dismantled in 1959 and the timber moved to the Árbær Open Air Museum. The pulpit is from the old church at Silfrastaðir.

Consecrated in 1960, the museum church is popular for christenings and weddings and regular services are held there in summer and during Advent.

The museum church can be hired for ceremonies.
The church seats 40-50 people. Hire of Árbær Open Air Museum Church costs 15.000 ISK
