Although The Living Art Museum´s primary exhibition space and office has moved to The Marshall House and LHÍ student-run gallery RÝMD has moved into the former bakery in Völvufell, the museum continues to house the collection and operate a collection project space in Breiðholt, where exhibitions provide an opportunity to for school and group visits, and to fulfil research requests.

Please note that although we do our best to fulfill requests, it is not always possible to so without proper advance and we ask kindly that special requests be made with that consideration.
