Rich with history, this free museum provides the history of. Greenlandic & Danish people’s. The grave room with the mummies was eerie,sad, it so intriguing.

I enjoyed visiting here, even if part of it was closed. It was free to visit in the winter. There are so many artefacts to look at and study. I wasn’t prepared to see the mummies! It was amazing to see how well preserved they...More

If you want to walk through the cultural history of Greenland this is a must place to visit. Terrific exhibition of Inuit culture. Small gift shop. Staff are very helpful. We traveled with Adventure Canada on the Ocean Endeavour.

If you appreciate Inuit culture, then you'll appreciate this extraordinary museum. There's an incredible array of inuit art and artifacts. I also enjoyed a 1940s film on Intuit culture, surprisingly not stereotypical.

With very few civilized areas in Greenland and not many tourists, the Greenlandic culture is somewhat of a mystery. The hours here are not very lengthy so it's better to go with a group. Interesting movie similar to MacBeth in there as well!

This has an excellent collection of local outfits and items that explain the Greenlandic culture. Things were nicely curated and explained by a guide (e.g. older women wear darker clothes). Also there are mummies of several people who starved to death in a cave hundreds...More

The museum gives a very good description of the Inuit life before and after the influence of European poeple. The only thing missing is some words about the artifacts shown
