Akureyri Art Museum

It will probably forever be the most northern art museum I’ll ever visit, the Akureyri Art Museum (Listafnið á Akureyri). It is located in the city center of Akureyri within a former dairy close to the church Akureyrarkirkja. It was opened in 1993 and is exhibiting artworks of Icelandic as well as international artists. The museum was extended over time and since 2018 it also uses the neighboring Ketilhús.

You can’t miss the entrance to it as the complete sidewalk is painted in all colors of the rainbow and inside as well as outside you’ll find a nice coffee bar. The art museum is an exhibition hall with works of changing artists on display – therefore it depends a bit on which exhibition is there during your visit whether you enjoy your visit. I had a lot of fun with Ragnar Kjartanssons work The Visitors.
