Directions to Reykjavik Art Museum
Since it was founded in 1973, the museum has endeavoured to present contemporary art in its many manifestations. Within the Kjarvalsstadir exhibition hall at Miklatún, there is a primary focus on paintings and sculptures by well established artists. New developments in art are explored and exhibited at Hafnarhus, in downtown Reykjavik. The third venue, Ásmundur Sveinsson Sculpture Museum and Park at Sigtún, is dedicated to the work of sculptor Ásmundur Sveinsson.
Over 20 exhibitions are put on each year at Reykjavik Art Museum, from international artists and large scale exhibitions to the work of emerging local talent.
The museum is accessible to the general public and anyone with a general interest in visual arts.
Prams, backpacks, large bags, umbrellas etc. are not permitted in the exhibition area but can be left in the cloak room at no extra charge.
If you want to make the most of your Reykjavík Experience, you may want to pick up a Reykjavík City Card, which grants you access to all the public museums, pools and city busses, in addition to discounts on many other things!
