The Einar Jonsson Museum - Review
Einar Jónsson was a celebrated Icelandic sculptor. His works are divided into three distinct categories: public monuments, private commissions, and personal projects. Most of the works found in this museum focus on this third category. The donated it to the city in 1909. In them you’ll see the sculptors spiritual influences and ideologies. He is celebrated for his prolific repertoire, the provocative and disturbed style of his art, and the way he harmonised classical sculpting techniques with his native Icelandic heritage. Even the museum building was built based on his plans and designs. But you don’t necessarily have to enter it to appreciate the man’s works. The garden outside is free to visit, and it’s filled with some of his finest works.

The Einar Jonsson Museum, Reykjavik Reviews
Just off to the side of Hallgrímskirkja sits an austere building that houses the national collection of Iceland’s foremost sculptor, Einar Jónsson, who specialised in dramatic figurative representations of local folklore and religious motifs. Several impressively large sculptures occupy a ground floor atrium, with access to the artist’s private apartments on an upper floor also available. An ornamental garden provides a home for more than 20 bronzes, if the weather permits.
4 stars b/c I only visited the sculpture garden in the back (open 24 hours) and didn't go in the museum. The work was amazing though I would have liked to go inside for more context. Works are labeled in Icelandic and English.
Awesome statues sculptures they have a garden with stuff done by Einar Jónsson and the garden is oðen 24/7
We only visited the (free) sculpture garden. Open 24 hours. And we loved it. Some very nice sculptures with a lot of symbolism. Sometimes a bit more explanation would have helped but the sculptures are very lovely. If you are at the church this is just next door and should not be missed.
If you're in the area it's definitely worth it to wander in and take a look at these trippy sculpture's and it doesn't cost anything! We didn't go into the museum.
