The museum is small. It tries to give an image of how life is lived in the far north with simple exhibits of clothing, equipment, and housing. You can take your time, because it only take a little time to see everything, and there isn’t...More

Qaqortog isn't much of a tourist town. The Museum is small and has strange hours. Price was high for the size.

Biggest challenge you'll have in Qaqortoq if pronouncing it! It starts as if you have something caught in your throat. Go from there. The museum and the stop here in town give you a better perspective on life in Greenland. Greenlanders are friendly so engage...More

While it is a small museum in a small town, it does have unique pieces related to the historical life of the area. The building itself dates back quite far- Charles Lindbergh stayed in the 3rd floor bedroom for a few nights (a small setup...More

The museum gives an insight into the different cultures and people of Greenland. Nicely presented and explained. Qaqortoq is beautiful, with all the wild flowers, the colorful houses, the strange stone carvings, the fountain, the fish market, and the little local co-op. While you're in...More

The small museum has displays and photos of earlier times. Absorbing the town's history enhanced the overall visit.

This is a terrific museum to visit. They have some interesting artifacts and information about Greenland. There are also some interesting things to see around this small town in the middle of nowhere. The stone carvings and the gift shop are a must see.

Our first hand experience was limited, in that the museum was closed the day we visited Qaqortoq. A real pity. It's a must visit museum, in that is reportedly gives a good view of life in Greenland. I would not advise a friend to take...More

Your ship will not dock in Qaqortoq, as the harbor can only accommodate small fishing boats. You will tender on shore in one of the lifeboats and dock right in the center of town. The Man and Stone sculptures are all around... More
