    Listasafn Reykjavikur was founded in 1973, and is the largest visual art institution in Iceland. The museum is open every day of the week.

    The museum is situated at three different locations in the city: the Kjarvalsstadir exhibition hall at Miklatún, where the main emphasis is on paintings and sculpture by well established artists; Hafnarhus, located in downtown Reykjavik, which serves as the museums institute of contemporary art, where new developments in art are explored; and the Museum and Park at Sigtún, which is dedicated to the work of the sculptor Ásmundur Sveinsson. In its 3.000 sq. meters of exhibition space, the Reyjkavik Art Museum presents over 20 exhibitions annually, varying from large-scale, thematic exhibitions to installations by international artists and projects by emerging Icelandic artists. Nice gift shop too.

    A contemporary art museum that exhibits a lot of local artists. As always with modern art, it’s hit or miss, depending on the exhibition. The second floor houses a permanent exhibition by Erró, one of the best known Icelandic modern artists. Free entry!
