  • Nothing to see and nothing worth visiting for. A waste of time and effort. The building itself is lovely but inside a massive disappointment 
  • A beautiful historic building can be visited in one or two hours, it houses a substantial collection of minerals and boasts precious meteorites that are unique in the world, mostly from Greenland. Definitely better the second floor even though it's a shame that almost all captions are in Danish.

  • We spent a very enjoyable hour or so in this museum. It was fun, informative and educational. My only negative was that there was a few rooms which were only in Dutch that looked really interesting bu...  more »

  • Second floor has a huge mineral collection. Some very unique samples too. Changing exhibits are interesting as well. There's a curious and rare exhibit with some nice odd things to see. Huge meteorite in the square. Overall, about 2 hours to see. And at 40 kroner, pretty inexpensive.
  • Nice meteorite at the entrance. Everything goes down hill after that. Very cheap entrance, but exhibition is frozen in the 1970s. For instance, there are some nice rocks from Jugosławia and Africa city. Most exhibitions are all in Danish and content wise they are equivalent to primary school geography class. Some rooms smell weird. On the second floor you will find and exhaustive collection of one (and sometimes two) of every rock on the planet. This sound fun, and it is for the first 3 minutes, but it is a bit like watching paint dry after that. One of the hallways in the otherwise nice building seemed to be painted by the local kindergarteners with blindfolds on (what a way to ruin a building!). What this place needs is a serious remodeling. Hire a newly graduated Liberal Arts and Sciences student and bring some life (and political correctness) back to this otherwise depressing building. The displays don't attract the eye and it really is only interesting to someone with a degree or a or a keen interest in geology. If you have 1.5 hrs 2.5 euros and no expectations then drop by.
  • Huge meteorite in the grounds, and the largest one (of 6 to hit North Greenland together) is inside the museum. Worth a visit just to see this giant space rock.
  • Beautiful historic building. Great exhibitions. Including local geological history. The Greenland Room doesn't really communicate the long corporation with Greenland's Geological Surveys. On the other side the Natural Historical room replica from 1600 something with oddities and curiosities is really original and also worth a visit.
  • Interesting exhibits, some aren't translated to English though
