The Museum is surrounded by an elegant sculpture garden, boasting around 30 sculptures by Ásmundur.
The building was in most part designed by the artist himself in the years 1942-59. He, for instance, built the curved building behind the house that was conceived both a studio and exhibition space. The architect Mannfreð Vilhjálmsson later designed the extension connecting the main building and the curved building. The form concepts of the house are inspired by the Mediterranean, the round houses of the Arab world and Egypt’s pyramids.
In Ásmundarsafn you will find magical shapes and a distinctive world.
