Þórbergssetur opened on July 1, 2006, at the farm Hali in south-eastern Iceland. It was built in memory of the author Þórbergur Þórðarson (1888-1974), who was born at the site. The centre houses a restaurant, souvenir shop and two exhibition spaces.

One of the spaces is used for various exhibitions, while the other offers an retrospective of Þórbergur’s life. With props and backdrops evoking impressions of past ages, it tells the story of Þórbergur’s life, from his childhood years at Hali at the turn of the century, to his twilight years in postwar Reykjavík. While the exhibition provides an overview of an remarkable artistic career, it also tells the larger story of the changes wrought on Icelandic society by the twentieth century.
