Owner description: The exhibition Points of View at the Culture House takes guests on a journey through the Icelandic visual world of past and present. Artifacts and works of art from the varied collections of six institutions provide a reflection of Iceland's visual art history and cultural heritage. Artists with different backgrounds and living conditions have expressed similar ideas at all times. There are seven points of view to be found in as many wings of the Culture House, connecting what you'll see, independent from the medium or time.

This is an offshoot of the National Museum, but is located right off the main shopping street. It took only a short time, but I especially liked some of the paintings on display, If you buy a ticket for either this or the National Museum, it is good for both of them.

The Culture House was an unexpected visit. It is full of modern and ancient art, including books dating back to the 900s (oldest books I have ever seen). I would recommend visiting the Culture House. The staff there is very kind and very helpful.

a few floors outlining Icelandic culture. One area addresses racism and diversity in Iceland which was interesting.

They had old and new art exhibits along with books and other interesting pieces, some animated. They have a great cafe on site and is worth a stop for refreshments.

This museum focus on the culture of Iceland and does a good job. Excellent art and the exhibits are grouped to focus on specific elements of culture and how art expresses them. Thoughtful.
