  • Pretty small. Not impressed with the collection of art of display
  • Great contemporary art - price also includes two other museums in the Reykjavik area
  • Eh. Very small. Admittedly I didn't get to the other two that are included in the price, but...
  • The quality of the different exhibits varied a bit ( in my taste). Most was quite conceptual in nature. But some were very nice. It did not take very looking to see everything .The building itself is also unique. The courtyard feels a bit like a prison.
  • Some interesting exhibits. Worth a look. Free for seniors
