Sun & Sea

Imagine a beach. The burning sun, sunscreen and bright bathing suits and sweaty palms and legs. Tired limbs sprawled lazily across a mosaic of towels. Imagine the occasional squeal of children, laughter, the sound of an ice cream van in the distance.

The school comes to the museum

Reykjavík Art Museum is located in three different buildings - Hafnarhús on Tryggvagata, Kjarvalsstaðir on Flókagata and Ásmundarsafn on Sigtún.

We offer free guided tours for students of all school levels for all of our exhibitions. At each visit we aim to create a platform where each and every student has the chance to take part in a discussion based on their experiences. We can easily adapt to the needs of each group, offer a general guided tour of our exhibitions or even a public artwork.

Each year, the museum puts up many exhibitions featuring works across different time periods. The visual arts are put into context as one of the many ways to explore the world around us. Art has an important role in society and education. Examining the visual arts develops critical thinking and our ability to engage in healthy discourse, which are important lessons to learn for young minds. Goals related to this can be found in the main curriculum for all school stages, the culture policy for the City of Reykjavík and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Therefore it's a given right for children of all ages to experience and enjoy art on their own terms corresponding to their age and development.

We welcome school groups of all ages that want to visit the museum, with or without guidance from museum staff. We do ask, however, that every group books their visit in advance. Our staff can receive groups every weekday from 08:30 to 16:30. The maximum number of students allowed in each group is approximately 25 students. A visit to the museum with a guided tour takes around one hour, but can be adapted to the needs of the individual group. Museum staff will present selected works from current exhibitions, encourage discussions and even present the students with accessible assignments related to the exhibitions. Before your visit it is good for us to know if and how the group is prepared, requests for emphasis on specific topics or certain portions of your curriculum.

Art comes to the school

Elementary schools can request a specially curated travelling exhibition on loan. The exhibition consists of two chests that open up into a small exhibition area. These moveable units can be set up in a classroom or an open area in the school. For ease of transport the chests are outfitted with wheels, they are 180cm tall, 70cm wide and 165cm long when closed. When opened they fold out into an area of circa 8m2 and contain around 8-10 works of art (originals).

Schools can choose between two exhibitions with related assignments. Along with the exhibitions, we offer a presentation by museum staff along with tasks for school staff.

Travelling exhibitions are delivered to elementary schools in Reykjavík free of charge. Other schools outside of Reykjavík can request the exhibitions, but will be required to pay a delivery fee. Presentation by museum staff is free of charge within the capitol area. The exhibitions are available for a period of one week up to a month.
