Reykjavík Art Museum – Kjarvalsstaðir

Listasafn Reykjavíkur – Kjarvalsstaðir

Kjarvalsstaðir houses the works of one of Iceland’s most influential and recognised artists, Jóhannes S. Kjarval. The exhibitions at Kjarvalsstaðir focus primarily on paintings and sculptures of the established masters of modern art.

The building is a fine example of Nordic modernism, it features floor-to ceiling windows that look onto the beautiful Klambratún Park.

One can take in the view while enjoying a drink or a snack at the restaurant. The restaurant is open from 10h00-17h00. There is also a Museum Store in the lobby and a lovely family-activity space, the Idea Lab. Experience Icelandic art and enjoy your stay at Kjarvalsstaðir.
