The Sigurjón Ólafsson Museum is dedicated to exhibiting works by the Icelandic sculptor, Sigurjón Ólafsson. It was founded in 1984 by the artist's widow Birgitta Spur, as a tribute to her late husband. She had the artist's studio at Laugarnes converted to an exhibition space to house a large collection of his works. These include sculptures, sketches and drawings, as well as biographical material. Since 2012, Sigurjón Ólafsson Museum has been a division of National Gallery of Iceland.
    I In addition to its exhibition of Ólafsson's works, the museum sponsors various cultural programmes. Its weekly summer concerts have also become popular cultural events in  Reykjavík.
Born in Iceland, Sigurjón Ólafsson (1908-1982) studied and worked in Denmark 1928-1945. After his return to Iceland he lived and worked in Laugarnes, Reykjavík.
