Not expensive the salat was to die for goat cheese strawberries slurp! The soup was hearty with very nice sourdough bread. Highly recommended 👍😁

Have visited Gerdarsafn many times and always left very satisfied. Gerdurs art is unic and she gave Icelandic art history a chapter of her own. The arcitecture of the house stands out in the enviroment and is worth looking at.

Gerdarsafn Museum has a very interesting collection of work by sculptor Gerdur Helgadottir, and runs an ambitious program of contemporary exhibitions. It's a quick bus, bike or car ride from the centre of Reykjavik, a staple in the city's museum's spectrum.

Great to see an ambitious curatorial program in a museum outside of a large city. Well worth the short trip out of the city center to get a feel for Icelands expanded contemporary art scene.

The current exhibition by Katrin Elvars, et. al. is inspiring and the fantastic photography of the everyday life of Chinese surroundings reminds me of the Dutch still life paintings. A must see!
