Ásmundarsafn museum is dedicated to the works of one of Iceland’s most beloved sculptors, Ásmundur Sveinsson. The house was mostly designed and built by the sculptor himself and he used to live, work and display his art there.
Ásmundur believed that art should not only be for a small elite but for all people to see and enjoy therefore his sculptures can be seen in many different places around Reykjavík. He donated his house and many of his sculptures to the city after he died in the 1980s. The garden around the museum is full of his art work and can be explored free of charge.
