Steinshús

Museum in Ísafjarðardjúp

One of Iceland's most famous poets, Steinn Steinarr (1908–58), is commemorated at this museum set in his former homestead. It details, in Icelandic and English, his wretched childhood, during which his family was split up, and his discovery of poetry and blossoming as a writer. Find it about 3km north of Rte 61 on unpaved Rte 635.
