Like most reviewers, we were here on a cruise. The museum is interesting in parts and is much more extensive than we expected. Nanortalik seemed overwhelmed by our visit, even though we are on a ‘small’ ship, and we suspect many were hiding in their...More

Visiting this museum is one of the best value activities you will find anywhere in the world for $5. Each building has an interesting story to tell and inside each building are more fascinating stories. For example, I learned that when food got scarce, the...More

There is not much to see in Nanortalik but this is a place not to be missed. It is actually almost the only place. The museum is not a single building but many buildings almost a village. For sure if you are here you are...More

This is a wonderful museum and a great way to see the history of Greenland. The museum is a large area of the town that you walk around and tour the various buildings that were in use back in the 30's. The artifacts from the...More

The museum's buildings are in the condition they were when actively used. They have artifacts, diagrams and photos from earlier eras. You are left with a sense of how the people worked and lived in historical times.

We much enjoyed the open air museum in Nanortalik. It was our first encounter with Greenland. Entrance is Euro 5 per person. Cash only. Visitors get a plastic bracelet in lieu of entrance ticket. The museum (consisting of several buildings) provides a good overview of...More
