Reykjavik Art Museum, Reykjavík: 6 reviews and 26 photos
The Reykjavík Art Museum is located in 3 different buildings, of which I have made other tips here, Kjarvalsstađir, The Ásmundur Sveinsson Sculpture museum and Hafnarhús (Harbour house), where this Art museum is located.
Here you can see contemporary art and a permanent exhibition on the works of the Icelandic artist ERRO.
There is a restaurant in this museum with a beautiful view of the Reykjavík harbour and from time to time there are concerts there and competitions (f.ex. who is the best chef).
Hafnarhúsiđ was built in 1932-39 as a warehouse and offices for the Reykjavík harbour and was one of the largest buildings in small Reykjavík back then. It was used as a storage room for large amounts of fishing nets. And it housed the offices of Hafskip, one of our shipping companies, which was forced into bankruptcy in 1985.
The museum is open every day from 10-17 and Thursdays from 10-22.
Admission: ISK 1.000.
Address: Hafnarhúsiđ, Tryggvagötu 17, 101 Reykjavík
Directions: In the very center of Reykjavík by the waterfront opposite Reykjavík Library. In the same street as Kolaportiđ flea-market.
Phone: 00354 5901200
