The Gallery is housed in a building opened in 1993 and designed by Niels Frithiof Truelsen (DK) and Palle Gregoriussen (FO). The construction was financed from official and private funds, Faroese as well as Danish.*

With its black-stained exterior and numerous gables, the building recalls the traditional Faroese boathouse while the straightforward interior floorboards is similar to the other museum designs by Truelsen in Denmark.

To the left you find the new exhibition rooms, and from the entrance hall there is also access to an older exhibition hall with skylights, built in 1970 by the Faroe Islands Art Society and designed by Gregoriussen.

The collection of the Gallery contains about 2600 works which mainly constitute Faroese works of art. The body of the works is based on an art collection assembled by the Faroe Islands Art Society and the Faroese government from the 1940s and onwards.

In 1989 the National Gallery of the Faroe Islands was established as an independent association.
