Set in a villa that dates to the 1930's, which was used as an artists' residence and workshop, this small, selective contemporary art museum is run by the Icelandic Workers' Union. In the summer it exhibits works from its collection of 20th century Icelandic art, which includes some renowned paintings by old Icelandic masters like Johannes S. Kjarval og Jon Stefansson, whose painting Fjallamjolk (Mountain Milk) was inspired by the landscpe of pingvellir, as well as come masterpieces of the "Cobra" painter Svavar Guonason
