The old harbour warehouse, Hafnarhús, offers a progressive exhibition program with local and international contemporary artists. The works of key figures, as well as established and emerging current artists are presented in six galleries.
Hafnarhús is also home to the works of Erró (b. 1932), a significant player in the international pop art scene.
Hafnarhús is located in the oldest part of Reykjavik, where the town’s boats and first docks lay. The building was erected in the 1930s and at the time it was one of the largest buildings in the country.
It was renovated by Studio Grandi architects in 1998-2000 to house Reykjavík Art Museum.
Hafnarhús Kitchen is temporarily closed. Meanwhile we offer free coffee for visitors!
