The museum Kálvalíð in Miðvági is one of the first local museums to have been established in Faroe Islands.
The museum has an exhibition in the old house Kálvalíð, which is a very old Faroese house.
In 1632, the land and the house were owned by the local clergyman. In 1673, the house and land became an annex for clergyman’s’ widows.
Later, the house became private property, and since 1968 the local parish has been the owner.
Many tales are about the widows from Kálvalíð, and most famous is the story about Beinta, (the author Jørgen Frants Jacobsen’s “Barbara”), who was a clergyman’s wife on Viðareiði and in Miðvági.
A lot of things in the house are from other houses in the village. The collection is meant to show how a Faroese family was living up until the modern era.
Visits must be prearranged through VisitVágar.
