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
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
Museum is very near the cruise dock where we tendered in. Beautiful colored houses heading up the hills. Unique carvings into rock faces are tremendous photo ops. Town fountain and small fish market are also popular places to snap photos. We had a beautiful day...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
There is a small Museum, but our tour took us there at 7:30 in the morning and the museum didn't open until 10:00. The visitor Center which is featured in the photo representing the museum has maps and people to give you local information. This...More
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 the inner part of the town, and you absolutely cannot miss them. There are around 40 sculptures, and you will see about 15 within a few yards from the tender. Qaqortoq is quite fascinating and very different from what most visitors expect.
