Overview

It is a rather frightening thought that until the 1990s this beautiful but tiny building housed the National Library of Iceland. Built in 1906-1908, it housed several national collections, the National Library, National Archives, Museum of Natural History and National Museum. However, all of these institutions have found other homes and now this elegant house, designed in the style of Danish National Romanticism, operates mainly as a museum, as well as being a venue for meetings, lectures, artistic events, and official ceremonies. Today The Culture House contains exhibition halls, meeting rooms, a cafeteria and a shop. Themed exhibitions are staged in halls on the ground floor and in the attic, and permanent exhibitions on cultural and historical topics are on the first floor and in the space up to the floor above.
