There's couple of exhibitions in this small museum, the bigger and more impressive one is the work of Sigurhans Vignir from 1940s, predominantly 1950s and up to mid-60s. There's a lot of construction work going on in the street but you can get to the museum.
Vignir's exhibition is photographs of ordinary folk in Reykjavik going about their business, there's 4 young women sitting on hard wooden chairs at a table, making shoes. The Labourers standing proudly, 2 lads wielding big rocks, making a wall maybe. There's family portraits of 4 female and male generational lines. Usefully, there's snippets in English to accompany the photos with the year they were taken.
There's a couple of screens, showing photos on a loop. The narration is a bit uneven, speculative rather than factual.
Folk mention an interactive screen to see archived photos, but as someone else also mentioned, you really want to see photos of old Iceland on the walls, with an accompanying snippet in English of the context and the year, in readable font size please! I could gladly have seen much more like this. An interesting museum nonetheless.
