In Hafnarborg‘s lower gallery, amid sculptural works by Þór Sigurþórsson, yoga instructor Anna Jóhannesdóttir will lead guests through a guided meditation, focusing on time, grounding and inner calm.

Guided Tour of Our Current Exhibitions
We invite you to a guided tour of our current exhibitions with Aldís Arnardóttir, Director of Hafnarborg. She will then take guests on a walkthrough of Tidemark, a retrospective of works by Jónína Guðnadóttir, and Pointers, presenting new works by Þór Sigurþórsson.

Museum Night takes place during the Winter Lights Festival, when around fifty museums open their doors to guests, offering a varied programme of events and entertainment. The cultural institutions of Hafnarfjörður, The Library, The History Museum and Hafnarborg, are active participants, as in years past. For Museum Night, admission to the museums and related events is free of charge.
