Akureyri Art Museum is situated in the town centre; in Listagil (Art Street). It aims to promote visual arts and culture in the local community as well as in a wider global context.
The museum hosts diverse art exhibitions showcasing the works of artists, young and old, Icelandic and international, featuring everything from illustrations and photography to performance art and installations.
After extensive renovations, the two buildings that make up Akureyri Art Museum have been joined through a connecting annex. Elegant galleries are now open on the top floor, where diverse and exciting exhibitions are offered. A new entrance allows better access for the disabled, as well as a gift shop and a café. Opportunities to experience art in a new way abound and the museum is already an important element of life in Akureyri.
