Why locals love it
This part of the Reykjavík art museum is mostly focused on paintings and sculptures by both locals and international artists. On a sunny day the yard is the main attraction for most people, though on the colder ones the works on the walls have most of the attentions.
Why you should visit it
It offers a permanent exhibition of key works by one of Iceland’s most beloved landscape painters, Jóhannes S. Kjarval. The museum has a decent cafeteria which offer mostly light courses and a coffee.
Kjarval is our "Picasso", saying that you dislike his work will leave a frowny face on the locals.
