We loved this place from the moment we saw it. The rich culture of the Icelandic people can be felt here. Not too many people

Great Museum, it's the former home and workshop of the sculptor Asmundur Sveinsson who designed and mostly constructed this building himself. The building itself is a gorgeous work of architecture, inspired by the Egyptian pyramids and the mosques of the Middle East. Beautiful and inspiring collection inside and outside the building. Asmundur´s art greatly shows all his interest in the Icelandic sagas, Folk tales and classical mythology. Lovely museum, quiet and there's a lot to see . The staff is kind and friendly. The museum also houses a museum shop. The sculptures around the garden are free to visit. One of top places to visit in Reykjavik. I highly recommend.

We visited 2 of the 3 national museums and this, the 2nd, was my favourite. I don’t know much about sculpture and I tend to forget about it in the face of paintings but I actually prefer it and am profoundly moved by it. The setting is the sculptor’s house and garden. The works are well laid out downstairs and there’s a lovely ‘sound’ space upstairs with fantastic acoustics. I like the way there are activities for children . We had a very long walk from town so by the time we’d done inside my husband was too tired to do the outside. Shame! This was the best bit! Larger scale versions of the inside exhibits dotted around the garden. I loved it all. And the person here was very helpful and called us a cab.

Amazing modernist private house from the artist, turned into a museum of his sculptures, which are located both inside and outside.
