Hafnarfjörður Museum of Local History


"Three kinds of houses, three kinds of classes"

This folk museum is housed in three separate historical buildings. One is Smiðjan (Strandgata 50) where the museum's main exhibition halls, offices and storage are located. The Sívertsen house (Vesturgata 6) is Hafnarfjörður's oldest house and it has been extensively renovated, today displaying a typical home of an upperclass family from the early 19th century. Finally Siggubær (Kirkjuvegur 10) is a small farm belonging to the museum. The farm has also been under renovation and gives an insight into the homes of working-class families from the early twentieth century.
