Arts Alley is the nickname given to the cluster of cultural and artistic institutions that line Kaupvangsstræti. Here you’ll find the Akureyri Art Museum, which is full of interesting artifacts relating to the area’s cultural history. Also keeping up the street’s reputation are the Akureyri School of Visual Arts, Kaktus performance space and a smattering of artists’ studios and galleries. All the galleries open new shows on the first weekend of each month.
