  • A museum with two small wings of exhibitions. At first you think that being small you will leave disappointed but Jóhannes Sveinsson Kjarval exhibition is well worth the visit. Great discovery. 2 other museums are included with the entry: Hafnarhus (also called Listasafn) and Asmundarsafn. 15 minutes walk from the great Church of Reykjavik.

Where to stay in Reykjavik

In this highly walkable capital, many of Reykjavik's hotels and guesthouses offer close proximity to the city's popular attractions, bars, and restaurants. The waterfront offers an exciting dose of activity. Although Reykjavik provides plenty of accommodations to its flocks of visitors, there is a dearth of budget options in the city. Price-conscious visitors should consider staying in a hostel, with both private and dorm rooms available, or a nearby campsite. Although the campground is not as centrally located as some hotels, guests are better positioned to take advantage of the natural surroundings.
