About Reykjavik Art Museum Asmundarsafn, Reykjavik
AsmundurSveinsson was a darling celebrity sculptor of Iceland. This museum, a branch of the Reykjavik Art Museum organisation, exhibits some of the best work across the breadth of his career. The exhibits organise his work thematically as well as in collections with works of other artists. This building was actually the sculptor’s own home, a Mediterranean-Arab structure that he built himself. A number of his works are actually on display outside the house, in the garden, and they are absolutely monumental in size. Make sure to check out the museum’s charming gift shop. And the igloo shaped bus stop in front of the museum. Keep yourself updated on the museum website for upcoming events.

Reykjavik Art Museum Asmundarsafn, Reykjavik Reviews
Best Art Museum (out of the three). We were offered coffee. The weather was nice to take pictures outside. The upstairs room was nice, could use more sculptures but loved the windows.
We started here on our art museum hopping and I'm so glad we did. The sun was shining and hitting the sculptures in the garden in a beautiful way, I didn't know where to begin. The inside is also beautifully architected (by the artist himself of course) and refracts light well. It's a photographer's dream. The sculptures themselves were emotive and interesting--the descriptions were thorough but not invasive to the experience. The gallery assistant was SO lovely and really chatted to my parents--two people who don't tend to talk about art. Oh and the coffee is free and DAMN good! Please stop by. around £16 tickets for all three art museums combined.
A true master of form. A bright and brilliant museum wit a great sculpture garden.
The museum is really great, and the sculpture garden will make any sort of weather lovely. Have been there many times and always leave amazed at Ásmundur Sveinsson’s work.
Very interesting museum, primarily of abstract sculpture.
