Don't judge a building by its exterior is well worth remembering when in Narsaq. One such building is the Narsaq Museum. Within a stones throw from the Narsaq Hotel the museum houses local history and the odd piece such as a mongoose in mortal combat...More

I was pleasantly surprised at the level of detail provided at this museum, which covered some aspects of natural history, local history and ethnographic topics. Staff are warm and welcoming. Definitely worth a visit.

The museum is well laid out with all exhibits labelled in English as well as Danish. The curator was a very interesting and knowledgeable man who gave us a very comprehensive history of the Norse settlers, the town and its activities. Not to be missed.
