Kjarvalsstaðir is mainly devoted to paintings and sculpture by well established Icelandic and international artists. It offers a permanent exhibition of key works by one of Iceland’s most beloved landscape painters, Jóhannes S. Kjarval (1885–1972), as well as changing exhibitions that explore various thematic and historical aspects of Icelandic art.

Kjarvalsstaðir was commissioned in 1966 and christened in 1973, the first building in Iceland specifically designed for visual art exhibitions. The architect was Hannes Kr. Davíðsson. Kjarvalsstaðir museum features exhibitions from its Kjarval Collection as well as diverse temporary exhibitions.
