Wonderful location. The main building was built in 1916 and designed by Icelandic architect Samuelsson Gudjon. Another addition of the building is the work of the architect Gardar Halldorsson. Relatively small, but pleasant museum. A calm space with interesting works of art. Most of the permanent collection is by Icelandic artists . Very friendly staff.

a must if you wish to know more about Iceland and Icelandic artists. Even if you dont appreciate a particular style. very friendly reception and staff. It is not Le Louvre, of course, but worth the visit. Entrance fees are very reasonable and include entrance to three museums. Across from the Pond and easily accessible on foot from anywhere in Reykjavik. Few minutes away from City Hall, the Church, Harpa, etc...

Bought a one day city card and visited this place the modern artwork on display was depressing on the upper level unless you particularly like dark and dreary oil paintings. Free coffee no milk or sugar YUK. it would have cost 2000ISK entrance would have felt ripped off. Dont waste your time and money.

Visited on a recent trip to Iceland, and glad I did. Very good showcase of Icelandic artists, with a particular focus on a well-known artist of the 1980s. Really nice to see an effort to ensure that Icelandic artists don’t get lost in the mass of art being created globally. Well worth a visit!
