A Small House with a Big Story
Nonni’s House is one of Akureyri’s oldest houses, built in the 1840s. It is dedicated to Jón Sveinsson, Nonni, who left the shores of Akureyri at the age of 12 in 1869 to become a Jesuit priest. He wrote children’s books based on his childhood memories from Akureyri that were published around the world in over 40 countries. Perhaps in your language?
Nonni’s House is a listed building part of Akureyri Museum’s 24-hour pass.
