Greenland National Museum and Archives

Greenland National Museum is Greenland's largest cultural history museum. The Museum preserves the Greenlandic history and our objects, art and images are from all over the country. A visit to the National Museum is a glimpse into all the cultures that have existed in the country from the earliest people to modern the Greenland society.

We spent maybe 90 minutes going through the museum. It is well worth the time. Won't repeat all the other reviews, but you will get a quick history lesson of the groups of people who have inhabited the island and some are surprising in time lines. The Norwegians actually settled in the south about the same time the Inuit did the north, but didn't stay. There were other earlier groups that did not stay. You get a feel for just now difficult and challenging simple survival was in Greenland. Exhibits are quite variable from taxidermy animals to modes of transportation. Fun fact - Nanook is the Inuit term for Polar Bear. Lots of other fascinating things to learn. Not big, simple but really well done.

Nuuk Art Museum

Nuuk Art Museum is approximately 600 m2 and holds a collection of roughly 300 paintings, watercolors, drawings and prints. Featured in the museum’s collection is a widespread selection of older art primarily made by European traveling artists, including pieces by Emanuel A. Petersen (1894-1948), Harald Moltke (1871-1960), J.E.C. Rasmussen (1841-1893) and Christine Deichmann (1869-1945). It also holds newer works by Greenlandic artists such as Hans Lynge (1906-1988), Miki Jacobsen (b. 1965), Lisbeth Karline Poulsen (b. 1981) and Anne-Birthe Hove (1951-2012). The museum and the majority of the collection were a gift from Svend and Helene Junge. It was inaugurated in 2005 in a former Adventist church; an addition made specifically for changing exhibitions opened in 2007. The museum was later handed over to the municipality of Nuuk, now Kommuneqarfik Sermersooq, which operates the museum today.

Greenland, an autonomous nation within the Kingdom of Denmark, can truly be said to be a world apart. The population numbers less than 60,000 in this, the most sparsely populated country and the largest non-continental island on Earth. Icebergs and glaciers are the most famous features of the environment and its most impressive attractions for tourists. Colossal fantastic shapes of blue and white float on a sea of deepest azure. The inland ice, kilometers thick, appears static, but cracks and creaks as it shifts and expands. Bearing the climate in mind, transport here is somewhat unusual. There are virtually no roads between towns, so if you want to explore, it will be by boat, airplane, sled, or snowmobile. In fact, you'll find that some of the best things to do in Greenland are active ones: dog sledding, snowmobiling, hiking, walking on the ice cap, and traveling its waters by boat. Explore this fascinating land with the help of our list of the top tourist attractions in Greenland.
