Laxness Museum

Gljufrasteinn was the home and workplace of the Nobel Prize winner, author Halldor Kiljan Laxness and his family for over 50 years.

The house which was built in 1945 is a good example of a 20th century Icelandic cultural home and has remained unchanged since the writer lived there.

Gljufrasteinn is now a museum with audio-guides in Icelandic, English, Swedish and German. There is a souvenir shop and multimedia show in the reception.

This is a perfect resting place en-route to West Iceland or to Thingvellir.

There are music recitals every Sunday during summer. Readings of Icelandic authors on the weekends in December.
