About Reykjavik Museum Of Photography, Reykjavik

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.

Reykjavik Museum Of Photography, Reykjavik Reviews - Write a Review

  • Tiny, not free any longer (1000kr). Definitely NOT worth your time and money. The exhibition that was on at the time of my visit was also not good photography in my subjective opinion.

  • This museum is way too small, not worth the 1000 fee. Great photos but tiny collection

  • Nice but rather small. Just FYI, it is no longer free. The exhibit was 1000 kr.

  • Free admission, so a good place to drop in if you happen to get stuck in a surprise thunderstorm and need shelter from the wind. Seems like they change exhibits fairly regularly. Up on the 6th(?) floor.

  • Cool library. Came in for a special photo exhibition which wasn't very good, however the permanent photos they have hanging around the staircase were fantastic. Take the lift up to the sixth floor and walk down to see them all. There are toilets and free wifi.
