Sigurhæðir is the former home of Icelandic poet Matthías Jochumsson, author of the the Icelandic National Anthem. It has been turned into a museum on Icelandic verbal arts, open from June to August. Entry is Kr 300.
I suspect the subtleties of Icelandic poetry would have been lost on me, though I did enjoy looking at the artificial waterfall attached to the property. The mirror-like quality of the water flow was quite striking.
Address: Eyrarlandsvegi 3, IS-600 Akureyri
Directions: Behind the Akureyrarkirkja on the right. You can also look up at it (and its waterfall) from Hafnarstræti, about a block from the bus station
