It has six exhibition halls for art, a multi-purpose space and an outdoor area in an enclosed courtyard. The house hosts exhibitions from the general collections of the Museum, diverse temporary exhibitions of works by Icelandic and international artists, and exhibitions from the Erró collection which has a permanent place in the Museum´s schedule. At the Hafnarhús there is a cafeteria where guests can enjoy refreshments and light meals in beautiful settings with an impressive view over the harbour. At the cafeteria there is also an open internet access for guests. A museum shop is situated in the museum which offers a wide selection of books and catalogues, postcards, posters, casts of sculptures by Ásmundur Sveinsson and various art pieces.
