Reykjavík – The Settlement Exhibition, as it's known, is an archaeological site based around a tenth century Viking longhouse, unearthed in 2001. Featuring a captivating hi-tech display and interactive multimedia tables explaining the area's excavations, a wrap-around panorama showing how things would have looked at the time when the longhouse was new, along with a cutting-edge exhibit that allows you to navigate through different layers of the longhouse construction. Artefacts range from ancient animal bones to fish oil lamps and an iron axe. The site's name comes from the estimated date of the tephra layer underneath the longhouse itself.
Harpa – Reykjavik's sparkling concert hall and cultural centre is a modern day marvel, with its dazzlingly intricate lattice of convex and concave glass panels designed by Danish architectural firm Henning Larsen, Icelandic architects Batteríið, and the artist Olafur Eliasson. In addition to the world-class shows and performances on its stage, Harpa also houses a branch of the 12 Tónar music store, gourmet restaurant Kolabrautin, and several design boutiques in its lobby.
