Ásmundarsafn, or the Ásmundur Sveinsson Sculpture Museum, is housed in the former home of Iceland’s most famous sculptor - Ásmundur Sveinsson. Sveinsson designed the building himself, drawing on the Bauhaus style, and had it built in the 1930s. The property, near Laugardalur in Reykjavik, includes a sculpture garden and is open to the public as a museum showcasing Sveinsson’s work. Visitors are encouraged to take a closer look at Sveinsson’s work, particularly those pieces on exhibit in the garden.

Among Sveinsson’s more famous works are a series of sculptures showcasing traditional roles men and women played in Icelandic society – The Blacksmith, The Washerwoman, and The Water Carrier. Because Sveinsson’s vision included art as an accessible talking point for the people, his sculptures can be found around the city of Reykjavik in areas tourists are likely to visit, such as the main entrance to the University of Iceland, Öskjuhlíð hill near Perlan, and on the Borg á Mýrum farm near Borgarnes.
