Housed in the same building as the city library, this is a seriously good museum. With over 5 million photographs from the 1870s to the present day, the museum has been doing a fantastic job keeping alive the culture of photography in Iceland, and promoting the local talent. A good portion of the collection is focused on the Reykjavik and the surrounding area. The lighting and presentation is simple, but striking and elegant. The museum shop is worth checking out. When you come down from the top floor try taking the stairs which are adorned with vintage black and white photos. Check the museum website for details on upcoming events. This has been called one of the best free museums of Europe.

  • Really enjoyed our visit here. Thanks to the staff for explaining all about the exhibits and the archives. We would definitely come here again.

  • This museum is a great place to visit. They have changing exhibitions of local photography and a collection of photographs from local photographers. There are books filled with proof sheets of photos from old to newer including some great work. I spent over an hour just paging through them.

  • Tucked in the same building as the public library, the museum is compact but charming. I didn't technically go into the museum itself because they were closing, but my friend and I checked out the gift shop and talked with the cute staff member about death metal. If I ever am back in Iceland, I definitely plan to go back!

  • The museum is on the 6th. floor above a library. A very smallish space. The exhibit changes regularly, you probably won't see the exhibit I saw. When I was there: photos of Iceland glaciers...spectacular. Get a Reykjavik City card, this museum is included for free entry, so you might just as well visit. Small museum shop. In & out in under 30 minutes. 😏

  • This is a small, yet cosy gallery. I really enjoyed my time here. I believe I was the only patron during my visit. That's Iceland for you, but I think it really enhanced the experience. I was served by a lovely staff member who was very excited to show me the new Christmas postcards! I also got a very quick Icelandic lesson - gleðileg jól is pronounced with fewer syllables than you think! I hope to visit again.
