Winter break 2019

  • 21.2.2019 - 22.2.2019

During Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd of February there is a winter break in the elementary schools of Hafnarfjörður. The swimmingpools in Hafnarfjörður are open and free for admission for both children and adults during these two days and a lot of fun things to do at Hafnarborg, Hafnarfjörður Museum and Hafnarfjörður Library.

Hafnarfjörður Library (Strandgata 1) invites children and families to play board gams, participate in a writing workshop and movies on specific times.

Hafnarfjörður Museum (Vesturgata 6) will be open during the winter break and also the weekend after and welcomes students and their families. In Pakkhúsið (Vesturgata 6) all interested can participate in a fun and informative orienteering game that leads the guests through the museum. The addmission is free.

During Winter Break, there will be a creative sound workshop at Hafnarborg (Strandgata 34), for children between the ages of 7 to 11 years, under the guidance of artist and musician Curver Thoroddsen. The workshop is connected to Phonemes – Exhibiting Music, currently on exhibit at Hafnarborg, where music is seen in a different light and how it overlaps with visual art. Creativity and playfulness is at the forefront and there are multiple ways for guests to participate in the works, making music in many forms, such as through video games, with instruments or things which are not normally considered instruments.
