The Culture House

The Culture House

In an old and magnificent building located in the heart of the city centre is The Culture House. The building, which was designed by a Danish architect, Johannes Magdahl Nielsen, opened in the year 1909 and is one of the greatest structures in Iceland. 

The exhibition Points of View in 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.
