A lovely collection of Icelandic art, but nothing special. If you have the City Card because it's included. But otherwise ... probably not a must.

The home and museum of Asmundur is remarkable . What drives a young man to leave his home and do something none of his neighbors and family could not imagine? Space, time and our place in the universe is something that never gets old. A...More

They charge too much money to get into for what is there. Still it was somewhat interesting. Didn't take a long time to get through it.

Was a nice museum to look at but smaller than we expected. Still it was laid out well and was not crowded so lots of time to look at things and learn.
