  • I was really grateful to have visited this attraction before going on the Golden Circle Tour. The exhibition by the Icelandic artist Kjarval helped me see shapes, colours and textures that he himself ...  more »
  • Great architecture with beautiful lighting. Very nice showroom/Gallery of contemporary art. When we visited the Museum showed the incredible great exhibition by Hildur Bjarnadottir. Small restaurant serving tasty dishes and a bookstore with many fine art books. Nice staff. Interesting to get acquainted with (one of) Islands biggest art painters. For art and architecture-is or interested this worth a visit-really a must.

  • Great place to stay over night, mostly covored with wifi plus big and calm place for your car! 10/10 would camp again!
  • This art museum is dedicated to Johannes S. Kjarval one of Iceland most recognised artists. The building style is very modern. If you are into arts this is a good choice.
  • Loved this Museum, the building itself is art.
  • Small and overpriced This museum is more for who is into Kjarval. I suggest you to take a look first a bit into his work before going. The admision comes as a pass for 3 different museums: Hafnarhús, Kjarvalsstaðir and Ásmundarsafn (Adults 1.400 ISK). That was the good thing because we use the pass to visit Hafnarhús that have a larger collection and is more like the kind of art I enjoy.
  • Extremely expensive but incredibly beautiful artwork. It's worth it.
