The sculptures of Sigurjón Ólafsson (1908-1982) span multiple developments in 20th-century art and range from formal busts to primitivist metal totems to wood pieces haphazardly stuck together. This museum inside his former oceanside studio is devoted exclusively to his work, and has a pleasant cafe with homemade pies and cakes and peaceful harbor views. It's a division of the National Gallery and was founded in 1984 by the artist's widow.
