Reykjavik Art Museum Hafnarhus - Review
This former harbour warehouse and fishery now houses six lovely galleries dedicated to the edgy art work of political painter Erro, also known as Gudmundur Gudmundsson. Most of the works here were donated to the city by the artist himself, who lives in Paris. But what really draws the crowds here are the temporary exhibits of progressive and experimental art by local artists. This exhibit is the latest addition to the Reykjavik Art Museum organisation. Occasionally, it even hosts poetry readings and rock concerts. Check out the cafe above the museum for its terrific views of the harbour.

Reykjavik Art Museum Hafnarhus, Reykjavik Reviews
The country is only a hundred years old and does not have a significant history of Art. We did see their exhibit of the hundred year anniversary of Iceland. The documentary was very interesting it had vintage photographs as well as some videos. Knowing very very little about its history, the documentary was quite informative. The collection of art itself is somewhat limited. Most of the art is from about the last 40 years. We enjoyed our visit there. Expect to spend about an hour and a half to two hours to see the museum.
Probably the experience here changes a lot based on the exhibition. We thought it was a very good space with interesting architecture and light. The exhibition itself was a bit hit and miss - some intriguing and amusing parts, some very nice photography, and some that didn't really work. Still, worth a visit.
Poor quality art in a country that literally oozes beauty. Prints were grainy, 1/2 the museum was dedicated to footage of someone hiking with a GoPro. Don't waste your money.
A fairly big museum with various exhibits of different mediums. I enjoyed the photographs on display. The building overlooks the harbor on one side. The price of admission is fair when you consider you get access to 2 other museums besides this one.
I really enjoyed this art museum. As part of the "trinity" of art museums in the city, this one was my favorite. The old warehouse building repurposed adds a nice feel to the experience, and there's quite a bit of art to see.
