Went as it was local to the church, but we worth a look. The gardens were a little slippery so we couldn't see all of the exhibits but it was very interesting the ones we did see. An interesting collection of works.

there's an entrance fee to go inside the building, but free to see the sculptures in the back. we didn't have a lot of time to go inside the museum, so we opted for the grounds instead. can also get a nice shot of Hallgrímskirkja.
