  • The Museum is dedicated to the geology, flora and fauna and the history of the Faroe Islands. The history of fishing as the main economic activity may not be missing. The exhibition is very clearly and absolutely worth seeing. The carved decorations of the pews from the Cathedral of Kirkjubøur are undoubtedly highlight of the displayed works of art. There is also associated with the national museum open air museum Hoyvíksgarður, a former farm, which is faithfully preserved within walking distance. Some of the equipment, especially the milk processing were not unknown to us: you were also still on Austrian farms in the 1960s often present and often still in use. The ticket is valid in both museums and was extremely favourable with 30 crowns (about €4). The Museum is located in Hoyvík, a suburb of Tórshavn and is easy to get 2 and 3 from the city center with the city bus line. Network scheme and timetable for the free city bus line there at the tourist office.
