National Gallery Of Iceland - Review
The national gallery was founded in 1884 in Denmark, where it hosted exhibition of donated artwork by Danish artists. Followed by a lot of changes in location, the collection was finally moved to its present address in 1987. Designed by Guejon Samuelsson – an Icelandic architect – the building was originally a freezing plant.
The gallery’s main feature is 19th and 20th century’s Icelandic artwork collection, at the same time it houses a number of international work also. Some of them include: Pablo Picasso, Edward Munch, Karel Appel, Hans Hartung, Victor Vasarely, Richard Serra and Richard Tuttle. The exhibitions are held across 7 halls in addition to that the national gallery houses a very well equipped library.
The gallery does not host any permanent exhibitions so there is something new with every visit! The guides at the place are very informative and enthusiastic, always ready to answer all your questions. Moreover the management is extremely cooperative and do their best to accommodate any special requests made.

National Gallery Of Iceland, Reykjavik Reviews
Pretty small gallery, full of modern art. Worth to visit if you like stuff like this. But I you or any of your companions not really fond of this art style you can definitely skip it as you won't loose too much. It is free if you got "City Card" that you can get from official visitors center. Currently you can see exhibition called "Rules of the Game". See photo for more detailed description
Clean, close to the airport, with a booked stay you can park car,shuttle to and from departure of air flight and trip. Suits, connect rooms, cookies, coffee. AM breakfast. Near by restaurants on walking or take a taxi to good Chinese at New Star,,or Russell's barbeque for beef,chicken or pork. Not far is popular Jean and Jude Vienna dog and homemade fries. M.N
Nice museam. Much of the artwork was modern and Geometrical based. Some very interesting outliers however. The place is quite small, so temper expectations if you're used to larger art installations.
A lovely gallery with all kinds of interesting art. Buying a ticket also gets you admission to two other galleries around town.
Very disappointing. One of the rooms was closed and that I think was the room that had a more traditional art on display. Only 2 rooms were open and the basement. I wish that when 25% of the museum is closed that they should inform you before you pay the admission fee. All displayed, are what I would loosely describe as modern "art". We were only in there for around 15 mins, as this form of "art" is of no interest to me what so ever. On a positive note, it is bright and airy. If you like modern art and understand how these sort of paintings, sculptures and videos get into a National Art Gallery then this is just up your street.
