  • Interesting Artifacts from the local area including land and marine animals. Seal skin collection and polar bears are a hilight  more »
  • A little museum with a lot of Tupilks and all kind art effects from the Inuit culture. There are 2 other museums that connected to this one.  more »
  • Nice showing of the Greenlandic culture and art styles. It makes me love Greenland. The northern lights had been beautiful in the city! The museum was superb and it really opened me and my family’s eyes to what Greenland was when we went!
  • Nice museum with Greenlandic art (carvings and more modern), historical artefacts, and preserved guest rooms in the loft. Also a small gift shop with postcards, posters, jewellery and some books (not in English).
