Guided Tour for Children at National Museum

By Iceland Review

A guided tour for children ages 5-8 will take place in the National Museum of Iceland tomorrow. The tour will retrace the tracks of the first settlers in the 9th century, travel through the country’s 1,200-year history and end in modern Iceland.

Among objects presented during the tour is an 800-year-old shoe, a mysterious elf casserole, an old door with beautiful patters, skeletons, chainmail armor, 1,000-year-old swords, axes and spears and various magical objects.

The children can listen to tales from their piers from the past and will be able to listen to a “telephone call” through time from a small boy who came with the settlers to Iceland and other children who have interesting stories to tell.

The tour guide is one of the museum’s experts, Helga Einarsdóttir. The tour begins at 2 pm and takes about 45 minutes.
