The House of Shark-Jörundur

 Jörundur Jónsson,
called Shark-Jörundur, built the house in 1885-86, using timber
from Norwegian ships which ran ashore at Hrísey in 1884. In 1917 the house
was moved down the hill, to its current site, but a statue of Shark-Jörundur
commemorates the spot where the house was originally build.
 

The house now holds an exhibition and
items related to shark fishing as well as the history of the island. You
will also find The Tourist Information Center in Hrísey.
 

Hours of Operation:
Summer: Open daily 13:00 - 17:00
