The Icelandic Folk and Outsider Art Museum is located in North Iceland, near Svalbarðseyri, about 10 minutes’ drive eastwards from the town of Akureyri, on the opposite side of the fjord.

The museum is on two floors and is wheelchair accessible. There is a lift between floors and ramps, except for the West Room where there are three steps down. The contents of the West Room are visible from the landing. It is easy to move from one room to another. The museum is peaceful with no bright or flashing lights or sounds from video equipment. If videos or audio works are shown, they are played through headphones.

The car park has a gravel surface, but there are wooden ramps at the entrance and a threshold. The garden and grounds are partially accessible to wheelchairs. There are grass paths.

Staff can guide the visually impaired, and those who wish, around the museum. There are two lecture halls on the first floor, both of which are also wheelchair accessible.
