Nýibær is an example of a medium-size turf house of the North-Icelandic type. This type of turf house emerged in the 19th century and is distinguished by the forward-facing gables of all the front buildings, but with all rear buildings arranged at right-angles. Nýibær has been in the National Museum´s care since 1956 and has been extensively renovated by the museum.
