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.

Small but beautiful collection. This art gallery is in connection with 2 others, paying for one ticket (1600kr) gets you in to all 3 for the day. Sculpture Gallery and the Contemporary Art museum in downtown Reykjavik. The gallery features Kjarval works. If you have the time and are very into art you will won't mind the walk. I would not recommend if you are rushing or aren't super enthusiasts about art galleries.
Great place to stay over night, mostly covored with wifi plus big and calm place for your car! 10/10 would camp again!
This art museum is dedicated to Johannes S. Kjarval one of Iceland most recognised artists. The building style is very modern. If you are into arts this is a good choice.
Dedicated to one of the most famous painters in Iceland. Great to visit if you know he artist.
Small and overpriced This museum is more for who is into Kjarval. I suggest you to take a look first a bit into his work before going. The admision comes as a pass for 3 different museums: Hafnarhús, Kjarvalsstaðir and Ásmundarsafn (Adults 1.400 ISK). That was the good thing because we use the pass to visit Hafnarhús that have a larger collection and is more like the kind of art I enjoy.
