RAM Ásmundarsafn Sculpture Museum is the former modest home and studio of the sculptor Ásmundur Sveinsson (1893–1982), who designed and constructed the building. The museum serves to honour his life and work and displays the largest collection of his sculptures both inside and in a beautiful park outside the building. Ásmundur’s art reflects his lifelong interest in the Icelandic sagas, folk tales, nature and classical mythology. The building itself is a magnificent work of architecture, largely inspired by Mediterranean architecture. RAM Ásmundarsafn also houses temporary exhibitions and installations.
