After famed sculptor SigurjonOlafsson died in 1984 his wife established this museum in their home. Enlarged to hold the large collection of his works, the museum eventually became a cultural center too. The location is beautiful, smelling of the sea, with grounds that have clear views back to the city. The collections are a reward enough to come here, as are the collections of archival materials and photographs, but the museum is also very popular for the classical music concerts it hosts in the summer. There are some other musical events through the year; keep track of them on the museum website. Do take a moment to enjoy the views of the sea along the waterfront.
