Nonni House

Built in 1850, this museum dedicated to the memory of Icelandic author Jon Sveinsson is located in his former childhood home which is also one of the oldest houses in Akureyri. Fully restored, the house has been maintained in its original form including olden-day household appliances.

Reverend Jon Sveinsson authored a series of beloved children’s books based on fictional brothers Nonni and Manni who live on an isolated farm and run into all sorts of family drama and adventure. Famous in Iceland and Germany, these books have been translated in over 40 languages.
