The Norwegian house is a very nice museum by the harbour in Stykkishólmur. It is the oldest house in Stykkishólmur built in 1832 and was the first two-storied home in Iceland and one of 3 biggest homes at that time. The owner of the house was Árni Ó. Thorlacius (1802-1891) a big entrepreneur in Stykkishólmur in his time. It is now a district folk museum and a reconstruction of this gentleman's home and is extremely well made and you feel like you have just popped in for a visit.
On the ground floor there is a museum store where girls dressed up as servants from this time assist you. It is like stepping into another time, I just loved my visit there.
The museum is open daily from June-August from 11-17h. From September-May it is open upon agreement.
Address: Hafnargata 5, 340 Stykkishólmur, W-Iceland
Directions: Just by the harbour in Stykkishólmur. You cannot miss it while visiting the harbour.
