The First Day of Summer at the National Museum

To celebrate the official First Day of Summer (Sumardagurinn fyrsti), which is today, the National Museum of Iceland invites families to participate in various orienteering games and have a go at solving riddles at the museum on Sudurgata 41 in Reykjavík.


Guests can also use the opportunity to take a look at the exhibition “Ekki snerta jördina! Leikir 10 ára barna” (“Don’t touch the ground! Games for 10-year-olds”) which recently opened at the museum.

The exhibition is a collaboration between eight Icelandic museums who studied the games played by ten-year-old children across the country in the winter of 2009-2010.

Visitors are invited to try out various games and toys, such as Lego and a football game, solve Sudoku riddles and much more.

Admission to the museum is free on the occasion of the First Day of Summer.
