Id never heard of the artist Erro before but saw his work here and am now a fan. One ticket gets you entry to the 3 galleries in Reykjavik.

I was an art student many years ago. So I enjoy visiting art museums in my travels. After paying the entry fee, we were left on our own with a brochure. There was no map or directions to exhibits. The only visible room from the entry is a small library of art books. We ventured up a set of stairs... More

When we were there only some of the exhibits were available. They try to make the price of admission reasonable by paying once of three museums, but the other two are a considerable distance from this one by the seaport. The exhibits themselves were that mode of contemporary art where one wonders what on earth distinguishes brilliance from inanity. In... More

I live in New York City and I'm used to the Metropolitan Museum of Art which isn't fair because I am biased. This was only two floors and very small. I did enjoy the portrait of Bjork though - can't get that in NYC.

There was only one small gallery with pop art when we went (march 2017), another installation exhibit that was made out of plastic bags and junk food, and a pretty bizarre video exhibit. I appreciate art in all of it's forms, but paying $15 to spend less than 15 minutes in a tiny museum with very very few exhibits was... More

Impressive contemporary museum near the harbor area with some well known artists and other experimental local work. If you have a pass from attending one of the other national museums and are in the area, worth an hour visit

The modern art exhibits gave our group a chance to see what Icelandic artists across the decades created. There was some fascinating commentary on both politics and culture idealism.

This museum reminded me of the ICA in Boston. An unexpected bonus: one ticket gets you in to all three museums in the city.
