The most interesting of the artists’ residences, Nonnahús was the childhood home of renowned children’s writer Reverend Jón Sveinsson (1857–1944), known to most as Nonni. His old-fashioned tales of derring-do have a rich local flavour. The house dates from 1850; its cramped rooms and simple furnishings provide a poignant insight into life in 19th-century Iceland.
A combined ticket for Nonnahús and the neighbouring Akureyri Museum is Ikr1400.
