This cultural center to the south of Hljomskalagardur Park focuses on strengthening cultural ties between Iceland and other Nordic countries. It is notable in several aspects. For example, the building’s striking design is owed to Finnish modernist architect Alvar Aalto. Its library houses over 30,000 media items that are not even in the Icelandic language. It organises many events for important cultural occasions such as the Reykjavík International Film and Literary Festivals and The Nordic Fashion Biennale. Additionally, the AALTO Bistro is a terrific dining option, with meals prepared by chef Sveinn Kjartansson. Stay updated on the activities of the center on its website.

Nordic House, Reykjavik Reviews - Write a Review
It depends a bit on the exhibitions of this place is worth a detour. When we were there there was an interactive exhibition which generated music based on the movement of the public. Great for kids.
I came here to see the free concert by Markús and the Diversion Session. The concert was great, just as the Nordic House (Norræna húsið) itself. It has an exposition floor, a small hall for concerts and events, a delicious café, and an impressive library (though it has no books in English). It's worth visiting for sure.
Quiet and beautiful, with views overlooking a bird preserve. There's a great restaurant inside too.
Ok restaurant - good exhibtion space
Nice venue for concerts, great library, nice atmosphere and beautiful architecture
