Reykjavik Art Museum-kjarvalsstadir - Review

There is much to recommend about this museum. It is the permanent exhibit for a large collection of paintings by Icelanding master Johannes S. Kjarval. Additionally the museum also exhibits some of the best works in modern art. Opened in 1979, it has been redesigned, presentation has been made more engaging, and now there is also an excellent cafe and a design and book store. Furthermore, the striking modernist building opens up to views of the Klambratún garden. The museum is part of the Reykjavik Art Museum organisation, and ties up with other museums to organise international art exhibits. Check the museum calendar of upcoming events.

Reykjavik Art Museum-kjarvalsstadir, Reykjavik Reviews

  • It's small and when I was there half of the exhibition was gone but the ticket price was also halved. It has a nice little coffee house and a pretty park around. The paintings were beautiful, really give back the atmosphere of this breathtaking country and it's nature's scenery.

  • Great museum! There's always a new and interesting exhibition to see there.

  • Although this was my least favorite of the three art museum locations, that's only personal taste. The space itself is massive and clearly a meeting point for locals to chill out with coffee and enjoy the sun (while it lasts!). There were two massive exhibits that went into depth on the local artists, which is all I really need. Not as gorgeous + inspiring as the other two though.

  • Actually one of the best art museums we visited. There are only two artists on display, but they have impressive collections from both, and both are some of the most significant artists in Icelandic history, Kjarval being the permanent exhibition and most famous. The layout and descriptions were good, and the lighting and spacing of works allowed you to really enjoy them. The cafe was closed, but they made up for it with free coffee.

  • Nice cozy building. I hid here from a snowstorm.
