We were looking for an indoor activity as it was all foggy outdoors. Its a modern building that showcases the Nordic aesthetic. Mostly for meetings and presentations etc and not really an indoor touristy activity. There’s a coffee shop in the lobby with views over the city. Some outdoor sculptures by Nordic artists outside the building.

We did not go for a specific performance but rather to check it out. A few interesting cultural exhibits and interesting architecture. Free admission. Not a total highlight but definitely worth a visit if you're in the neighborhood.

The Nordic House is hosting conferences, concerts and all sorts of cultural happenings. It is a cultural centre of great importance to the Faroese people.
Nice building and a cafe with lots of space.

Interesting visit for Scandinavians, very child friendly. We missed concerts but had a good buffet at the restaurant there. Special architecture with gras on the roof. Must visit for Icelanders since the manager is from Iceland :-)

This was not a highlight of the stop for us. It was built in the old way with the Grass Roof and it is large lots of things inside for the tourist and free washrooms. Not really sure what its use is maybe for local council meetings and concerts.

All Scandinavian capitals have a Nordic Museum. In some capitals it is vast and educational, here is smaller but still it is housed in a dedicated building with a lot ofglass and shows to the visitor how life has been in this part of the World.
As there are no many things to do in Torshavn, the Nordic House is one if thetop recommendations

Walked from city centre to the Nordic House and somehow expected more. It is a nice building combining contemporary to traditional elements and surely a great venue for different types of events.

This splendidly designed building was carefully chosen to fit in with the Farose landscape. The true nordic nature of the project is encapsulated in its construction: the floor tiles are Norwegian, the furniture Finnish, the timber walls Swedish, the glass Danish and the roof Icelandic. The building sits beside the glorius brutalist Soviet style HQ of the Faroese national broadcasting company. What a fine pair!
