Reykjavík's largest commercial gallery, Gallery Fold, offers the country's largest selection of contemporary Icelandic art. The gallery displays and sells art by many of the best-known Icelandic artists - graphic, pastel, paintings, sculpture and tapestry. Art Gallery Fold has two branches, this one on Laugarvegur, close to the city bus terminal station (but the entrance is on Rauðarárstígur), and another branch in Shopping Centre Kringlan, where the emphasis is on a selection of ceramics, glass and smaller pictures.
Guðmundur Jónasson Travel is the way to go if you're looking to take a bus tour of Reykjavík - or of any other city in Iceland! Yes, it organizes excursions within the capital every day of the week all year round, and also offers you the chance to visit the countryside, the mountains, and South Iceland. It rents out buses, conducts special photographic tours, and offers tailor-made excursions for groups with specific requests.
While not as novel in its selection of biological specimens as the Phallological Museum, the Museum of Natural History is well worth a visit. The collection hosts the usual suspects, geological, botanical and zoological exhibits displaying the nature of Iceland. In rather crowded rooms a visitor can wander among specimens of most Icelandic animals from insects to polar bears. The bird collection is especially grand, counting among its flock a white raven, an almost mythological fowl. In addition the museum makes journals, papers and geological maps available for those interested. The museum is inconspicuously located by the central bus terminal, Hlemmur. The entrance is from Hverfisgata, and then follows a considerable trek up four flights of stairs.
