Opening hours 2020
Gljúfrasteinn – Laxness Museum is closed from 31st July 2020 due to renewed restrictions because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The museum is not able to secure the 2 meter social distancing rule for guests. Further security information can be found here.
These measures remain valid until 27th August. The Icelandic government reassesses the need for the restriction on a regular basis, ie. whether it can be lifted earlier than planned or whether it is necessary to extend its period of validity. The restrictions apply to the country as a whole.
Visitors can virtually visit the museum, access the art collection and navigate between rooms here, accompanied by the Hamrahlíð choir singing Hjá lygnri móðu in the background, a poem by Laxness.
