Dúvugarðar Farmhouse and Heritage Museum

31 Saksunarvegur, Saksun 436, Faroe Islands

In the remote village of Saksun along the eastern edge of the Dalsá River is the village church and ancient farm of Dúvugarðar, now a national heritage museum. This institution provides a realistic portrait of what life was like for Faroese farmers from the Middle Ages to the early 20th century. Parts of the stone farmhouse are 300 years old. It’s still used by working farmers, so be considerate while visiting.
