National Museum of the Faroe Islands
Ranked #9 of 29 things to do in Streymoy
Attraction details
Reviewed 7 October 2018

Given how small the Faroe Islands are and how few people live there, this is really an impressive museum, both for its natural history collection, the boats, fishing history, archaeology displays and most especially for the beautiful Kirkjubour church pew carvings, which are really impressive. The open air extension is also pleasant. One suggestion to the museum - having the museum's name appear in English outside would make it easier to find, we were wondering whether the open-air exhibit was a village or just a private homestead having passed it several times going elsewhere.

My wife and I had been traveling around the Faroe Islands for a week when we got to here. It would have been nice to have seen it first, but it was very interesting for sure. It tell the story of the Island and the Faroese people. It starts with Vikings and the the fishing industry and how it all started. these were very study people and how they did and accomplish what they did is a miracle in itself. The museum gets into the boating and sailing industries and well as the birds of the island, the rock and other information about it. it's a two for one deal and worthwhile

The museum covers the geology, nature and culture of the Faroe islands. It is relatively small over two floors but does a good job of covering a wide range of subjects relating to the Faroes. The building is dimly lit with the lighting focused on the exhibits.

A little way out of town it is definitely worth a visit.

There is free WiFi here as well as toilets and a small cafe area (honesty box for drinks).
