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
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.
The museum building itself is very interesting architecture. The exhibits were early and late 20th century paintings. We especially liked the paintings that were of the mountains and glaciers, as we will soon see those same places. Staff was very friendly.
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.
Nice space and exhibits of Icelandic and international artists. Loved that it's located within a park and has a nice little cafe too.
Very nice museum giving you an overview of the Icelandic culture and art as well as some of their most famous artists. I felt it very interesting to see more about nordic art which is not the most broadly spread internationally.
