This is a wonderful museum and a great way to see the history of Greenland. The museum is a large area of the town that you walk around and tour the various buildings that were in use back in the 30's. The artifacts from the...More

The museum's buildings are in the condition they were when actively used. They have artifacts, diagrams and photos from earlier eras. You are left with a sense of how the people worked and lived in historical times.

This museum consists of about 10 building with exhibits. Admission is minimal and you get a good feel for what this town is all about.

We intended visiting the open air museum in Nanortalik but only made it as far as the lovely little church where a choir sang some beautiful songs, mostly in Greenlandic. Do yourself a favour and visit the church if it is open, as there is...More
