We were looking to see some Icelandic paintings, but the beautiful spacious display galleries were occupied by very modern display art. Great for anyone who's into that, but obscure, and not very meaningful for us.

Disappointing! Just not a lot there and what there was was not inspiring and except for the audio visual room nothing stood out. Very small. Limited appeal.

Dining room extremely noisy. Food barely above average. Video of cruise DVD didn’t work. No refund offered. Agent with Gohagan Tours not knowledgable. Otherwise spectacular.

Unique entry into the mind of artists. Absolute treat to the eye and ears. Don’t miss this when in Reykjavik. So many options with the city pass.

I was really hoping there would be more art here. The exhibits were ok, with nothing special or memorable. If you are short on time, this is not a must do in Iceland.
