Sigurjón Ólafsson Museum

The Sigurjón Ólafsson Museum is dedicated to exhibiting works by the Icelandic sculptor, Sigurjón Ólafsson. It was founded in 1984 by the artist’s widow Birgitta Spur, as a tribute to her late husband. It is she who had the artist’s studio at Laugarnes converted to an exhibition space to house a large collection of his works. These include sculptures, sketches and drawings, as well as biographical material. Since 2012, Sigurjón Ólafsson Museum has been a division of National Gallery of Iceland.
