Yearning for Space Extended

The exhibition presents works of Ásmundur Sveinsson (1893–1982), Gerður Helgadóttir (1928–1975), Jón Gunnar Árnason (1931–1989), and Sigurjón Ólafsson (1908–1982). The works in the exhibition date primarily from the 1950s and 60s, around the dawn of the space age, and therefore refer back to the technological advances of the era, not in the least to science fiction, a genre which was rising to prominence during the same period.

At the exhibition, the dome of the museum serves as a planetarium, where you can look up into space and view various cosmic phenomena.
