  • One of the few days we had bad weather, we decided to visit the Museum. Here was free access and very few visitors. The exhibitions were very informative and provided a good basis for later exploring on the net about Greenland's history. The staff was incredibly nice to come with in put. Suddenly, it was a good day in spite of the weather.

The museum maintains the central files about preserved ruins, graveyards, buildings etc. and participate in nature conservation and townplanning.
