Sigurjón Ólafsson Museum

The Sigurjón Ólafsson Museum is dedicated to exhibiting works by the Icelandic sculptor, Sigurjón Ólafsson.

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.
