Wear a Costume, Get Free Entrance to Heritage Museum on June 17

Residents and tourists alike will be able to get free entrance to the Árbær Open Air Heritage Museum on June 17, Iceland’s National Day, if they wear a traditional costume.

“Traditional costumes and national dances will be featured on this festive day, and guests are encouraged to come in their own national costumes,” reads a recent statement from the popular museum.

Notably, the free entrance will be available to all national costumes from throughout the world, so visitors are free to don their lederhosen, dirndls, and anything else!

Other events will include the crowning of the Mountain Woman (Fjallkona), lessons in folk dance, and bread baking demonstrations.

Celebrations for June 17 will last from 13:00 to 16:00.
