Lovely range of art and artifacts, beautifully displayed. Some of the exhibits are intellectual absorbing as well as being lovely on the eyes. Well worth a stop. For me, a doll collector in my early days, it was amazing to see a very comprehensive display of dolls from around the world as well, as contemporary sculpture, and intriguing art of a wide range - all displayed against a brilliant white so appropriate in the Icelandic setting.

The natural beauty of Iceland is really the reason to visit. But on the cultural front, this wonderful museum was a real high point. The art is smart, accessible, and totally charming. Which also describes the gentleman running the museum - he took the time to tell us about the place and share his collection of fascinating toys. If you are in the Akureyri area, this should not be missed.

Found this place online and it became the must see place for our Akureyri stop. Totally worth the visit if you like quirky off the beaten path art museums. The owners have a strong sense of art and artistic display. Also the building and views out the windows enhance the experience of the space. Definitely a Icelandic folk museum and well worth the effort to get there.

In a world where art often becomes an isolated phenomena, living somehow outside of the "normal", the art approaching life without a parallel to it, it is like a refreshing breeze to visit Safnasafnið. I really loved my visit, finding the art to be full of heart and beauty. This museum is really a pearl in every context - thank you very much.

This little museum, by the roadside east of Akureyri, is a gem. In there you will find a collection of folk art that will impress everyone in the family, young or old. I couldn't think of a better place to start if one wanted to arouse a young child's interest in art or in museums. Definitely worth the stop.

Not the biggest museum in the world, but it's worth a stop in if only to see the huge blue man out front, the collection of traditional textiles, and above all - the concrete statues featured in this attraction's profile photo. The ones of Jesus and the Devil had me mesmerized.

This exhibition is very special and might perhaps be called exceptional. On display are paintings, sculptures ect. that really give your thoughts a flight and even get you wondering about tne artists.

Really not with stopping I'm afraid - a very small collection of fair uninspiring stuff. Nice free coffee though and the curator was very helpful and friendly.

Interesting museum if only for the architecture and the immense book collection. Staff very laid back and you could easily spend many hours here settled on here sofas reading their huge collection of glossy books about art, life and everything else in between.

I'm glad we took the time to stop and explore.
