Halldor Laxness Museum

In a beautiful meadow on the outskirts of Mosfellsbaer is a museum dedicated to Icelandic author and Nobel Prize winner Halldor Laxness (1902-1998). Opened in 2004, the museum is housed in his former home and is unchanged since Laxness lived there, with original furniture and artwork on the walls by famous contemporaries like painter Johannes Kjarval.

Enjoy a multimedia presentation including interview clips with the author who penned 62 books over his lifetime. Summer musical performances are given on his grand piano on Sunday afternoons.
