  • The pieces featured in this museum are closest to "traditional art" with paintings made by an Icelandic artist. It was interesting to see their interpretation of the Icelandic landscapes, but I wish m...  more »
  • Not my cup of tea. There are 2 galleries. One I liked, one not so much. It was near where I stayed. Otherwise it might be off the beaten path. There's free parking.  more »
  • The museum consists of two exhibition halls, the right one shows different collections of modern art (including non-Icelandic) and the left one contains works by J.S.Kjarval and is highly recommended ...  more »

  • 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.
