“Fine Art By Icelandic Masters”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

This is really a combination of 3 small art museums. I appreciated the Kjarvalstaddir for its outstanding paintings by Johannes Kjarval('Milk Mountain','Thingvellir').I enjoyed the Asgrimur Sveinsson Museum for its fime sculptings by Sveinsson('Kiss').I did not enjoy the museum by the harbor museum that much because I do not consider Erro in the category of Johammes Kjarval or Asgrimur Sveinsson.These 3 art nuseums are spread apart in 3 different areas of Reykjavik.The 1,100 Kronir fee includes all 3 art museums .They are open on Mondays.

Very limited amount of art to see... interesting display in room that was curtained off from the other displays was interesting.

“Good for Art lovers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

A small museum but when we went there was some good interesting art there. If you are interested in art it is worth a visit. You can also use your addmission ticket on the same day in some of the other museums.

“Museum near the harbour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

It's quite a good place if you want to see some contemporary Icelandic arts. Close to town centre and horbour. There are a nice small cafe and library (relaxing space with a chess set ) too.
