My colleague and I were visiting Nuuk to research a play that takes place in 1408 and 2060, in Greenland. We spent many hours in the public exhibition and also spoke to key members of the Museum staff who arranged for us to be able to use the library, as well as taking time to show us around the exhibitions personally. The Museum is wonderful. The level of information in the exhibitions is just about right, and the selection of objects very nicely displayed. Everyone has heard of the mummies, and the child's face is very powerful, looking at you across 500 years. There is a great Norse exhibition with some of the best preserved medieval garments in the world and lovely intimate objects like hand carved toys. The exhibition on Greenland's more recent past is good too with interesting everyday objects sitting side by side with facts about culture politics health etc. Having the museum housed down in the historic buildings near the old harbour and beach works exceptionally well too. A must see.
