The museum is a repurposed factory or warehouse and features modern art. The building itself is interesting and worth seeing and going through. The primary exhibit when we visited was work by the Icelandic artist, Ragnar Kjartansson. The art included paintings, constructions, sculpture and videos....More

We happened upon a magnificent and stunning exhibition. The museum was cleared out for an eclectic showing of repetition art. It is modern and avant garde.

We found a few things we really enjoyed, but really only went because admission was free with our city pass. Someone who likes modern art might really enjoy this. Overall well organized though.

Considering the size of Iceland and that this only exhibits Icelandtic artists, the exhibit was very good. Modern art is often a direct reflection or pulse of current thought and mood, from this perspective I found it interesting.

A delightful and helpful receptionist and cafe barman just added to the joy of seeing the art work. Not to be missed

I really enjoyed this museum even though I didn't like one of the exhibits (too over the top to the point of annoyance). I found some of the exhibits touched me emotionally in a way I usually don't feel at art museums. Very modern approach...More
