This Art Museum is the largest of the 3 art museums located in Reykjavik. I found the Erró exhibition currently showing to be a very interesting perspective using the theme of China’s Mao posters incorporating well known European landmarks.
What I loved is that I was able to see the whole museum without requiring the whole day. The staff is also incredibly nice and helpful.
Art Museum Hafnarhus is very modern. It has lockers and toilets, and a gift shop, so if you are not into the modern art, you can hide here from the rain outside.
This was the first exhibition we visited on a cold snowy day. Warm welcome, great explanation of the works on display and an explanation of the three venues included in out ticket price. Fascinating building. Just six galleries but all excellently curated. Free coffee in a cosy…
Loved the exhibitions we saw here, all by contemporary Icelandic artists. One group show, one solo retrospective and one installation work on the ground floor - all were comprehensive and interesting. Worth checking out what they have on while you’re in town if you’re into art.
