Hrafnseyri - Museum of Jón Sigurðsson

Hrafnseyri in Arnarfjörður is the birthplace of Jón Sigurðsson and today there is a museum dedicated to him and his memory. As a part of the museum is the old turf house that Jón grew up in and the chapel that was built in his memory. The church that stands outside is always open for guests as well. In Hrafnseyri there is a really good access for disabled people and the place is recently renovated with access for everyone as a first priority.
In the old turf house is a small coffee house where you can get soup, bread, coffee and homemade treats.
