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.
