Hallgrimskirkja is the third-largest building in Iceland and took 38 years to build. In front of the church is a statue of Leif Eriksson, a gift from the United States. The statue of Christ inside the church was donated by the Icelandic sculptor Einar Jonsson in 1948. The church also contains a copy of the first Icelandic Bible (Gudbrandtsbiblia), printed in 1584. The tower is open daily from 9 am to 8 pm, and the entrance fee is $5.50 for adults and 75 cents for children. There is a prayer service with organ music and lunch every Thursday at noon. The church is one of only three Reykjavik churches with bells that chime on the hour.
