  • 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.
