Directions to Reykjavik Art Museum Asmundarsafn
Ásmundarsafn is the former home and workshop of the sculptor Ásmundur Sveinsson (1893-1982), who designed and mostly constructed this building himself. The museum serves to preserve his work and life, and displays the largest collection of his sculptures both inside and outside the building. Ásmundur's art greatly reflects his lifelong interest in the Icelandic sagas, folk tales and classical mythology. The building itself is a magnificent work of architecture, largely inspired by the Egyptian pyramids and the mosques of the Middle East. The impressive sculpture garden surrounding the building can be enjoyed for free by anyone at any time of the day or year. The museum also houses a design shop.
