Two rooms are reserved for temporary exhibitions. At the time of the Greenlandic painter Anina Hansen works shown. A film which shows that the Inuits or Eskimos, as they were called at the time, shows upstairs at the request of the featured movie "Palos Brautfahrt" by Knud Rasmussen in 1933. On a rainy day you should take is necessarily the time, watch the movie...

  • In relation to the city's size and location, the Museum is definitely worth a look. However, you could miss a more outspoken approach to the old colony there is most famous in Greenland, being a pioneer man H.J. Rink was Inspector down here.
