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.

Bravo, people of Reykjavik! This museum is a great example about the modern art, about the (post)modern sculpture and sculptors! I've made a trip on their site and here, on their page on Google Maps and it was an awesome experience - for sure it will be one of my future destination in the world (I have a great admiration for Island and Islanders, so...)! Again, bravo and congratulations!
I am horrified to give this phenomenal museum 2 stars.... The sculptures we're incredible which should easily be 5 stars.... I just wish the staff we're even 1/12th as incredible as the museum. We walked in at 4pm, the lady told us she would be right with us. We left 50 minutes later and we still had not talked to her for a tour. Very dissatisfied. We came from Canada to view and learn about the incredible works here. The paper information we received was not cohesive with the timeline on the wall or with the sculptures themselves. Very disorganized with no explanations.
Great Museum, it's house of Artist Ásmundur Sveinsson. You can explore all his important products during his whole life.
Friendly staff, very nice collection, good time :)
One of the three branches of the Reykjavík Art Museum, the Ásmundarsafn displays the works of master Icelandic sculptor Ásmundur Sveinsson in the building that used to be his home/studio. The front desk ticket taker was very enthusiastic about the subject and gave an almost mini-tour of the place, discussing some of the more famous pieces. She was fantastic- plus you get a free cup of coffee in the lobby!
