  • This is a really cool museum. The word museum is used in a rather loose sense. It is more of an open air heritage site showcasing the life of both settlers and the indigenous population. There are several houses depicting different aspects of the everyday life of the local community. It is very close to the port area and one can easily cover the whole site in 20 to 30 minutes. It is certainly worth a visit
  • One I want to give the five star among five to this museum because it is one of the museum that provide very historical things such as traditional cultures and many more things like that still they provide all the knowledge that we cannot get from the internet such as the photos are there hath museum is your and then just wrote the when and where they are like that information and we can easily get the information in your mind if we're watching the right information from the museum and the still I want to say it is the best and you should visit at least once a year
  • Very interesting exhibitions about the history, people and wildlife of Sisimiut and Greenland, inside the old colonial buildings. A must-do when visiting the town.
  • Sisimiut Museum is a museum in Sisimiut, Greenland. Located in a historical building near the harbour, specialises in Greenlandic trade, industry and shipping, with artifacts based on ten years
  • Greenland is my dreamland.
