This small gallery is well worth your time to visit. It has rotating exhibitions. When we visited, we saw a wonderful showing by a modern kinetic and mixed-media artist. This is just one of many places to visit on a day's walk in Seydisfjordur. There is a cafe and gift shop to round out your visit.

Our quick visit to this progressive art gallery was a treat. The art was esoteric at times, but quite impressive considering how remote this little village is on earth.

This small and unique arts space is worth a visit when you are visiting the tiny town of Seydisfordur. There is a restaurant / cafe on the first floor that I did not eat at (though, I wish I would have) and then on the second floor is a visual arts gallery. The pieces that make up the collection are unique and interesting. There is also no fee to get it.

The Skaftfell - Center for Visual Art is a small exhibition space with modern Icelandic art located around above a cafe. It's worth a stop if you like modern art and even if you don't because it will be a quick stop.

Located over a pizza place, this is a tiny modern art exhibition, which is quirky and fun.
Examining the exhibits takes no more than 2 minutes.

Well if you pop into the cafe then the center is free and just upstairs. Depending on when you visit the exhibitions vary so that depends on your taste as to whether you will enjoy it. It was "modern art" when we visited and certainly "left field" (which means it was weird !) and not quite for us. But hey if you come here the town is beautiful and just worth the trip alone. Which was the main reason for us to visit.

One of the best visual arts galleries in Iceland on top. At the bottom is a very cozy café/restaurant. Highly recommended.

This exhibition space is located above the Restaurant Skaftfell and had limited operating hours when we were there in October 2015,
but still had some interesting art on view.

So this is right above the Bistro Skaftfell so we stopped by after we had finished eating and drinking downstairs. This center is definitely full of only modern art which I'm not necessarily as familiar with or enjoy; however, the descriptions of some of the pieces were neat. If you're really into art or if you are having a meal downstairs, I would recommend people to visit it.
