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.

Admission gets you free entry to two other museum's in the city. Great deal and very interesting modern art mixed with some older Icelandic painter and landscapes
You really have to appreciate modern art in order to enjoy this museum. I do not. One of the exhibits was an actual pile of actual garbage bags in a corner..... The section that isnt modern art is rather small and only contains art from one artist. It's also a bit pricey for maybe a 15-20min walkthrough. The cafe is nice and the building is very well maintained. But other than that, not very worth it.
This is a pretty awesome museum. The architecture of the building is worth seeing alone. The galleries are a bit small but the curation is top-notch, so plan to spend some time there. Getting coffee in the cafe is a nice opportunity to rest, relax, and contemplate. Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly.
Very small, intimate space with an excellent outdoors area and cafe
Nice space and exhibits of Icelandic and international artists. Loved that it's located within a park and has a nice little cafe too.
