This museum gives you a nice insight in Greenlands impressive history. The museum is filled with historical prints and relics from the time of exploration and big winter expeditions. A must see when you're in the area!

On an expedition cruise we made a stop here. Interesting exhibits of the local culture and history. The town isn't too big, so take your time and enjoy what they offer

Worth a visit while you're in Ilulissat. It gives a good idea of the XIX century Arctic exporers, especially Knud Rasmussen, and history of the city and surroundings. Many information are in Greenlandic/Danish only (e.g. documentaries on screens) so it was quite disappointing to be...More

The museum is not big, and it is a bit expensive (although everything in Greenland is expensive). However, there is a lot there, and some really interesting material about the history of Greenland. Worth spending an hour there.

Popped into the museum and were not disappointed. Interesting history of the settlement and the price of the ticket also gave you access to the art museum nearby. To be fair, everything is nearby in Ilulissat 😀 Friendly staff with a warm welcome

This museum opened our eyes to the creativity of the early Inuit inhabitants. I was impressed with the wooden carved snow goggles as well as the intricate artefacts. All the explanations are in three languages including English so this made it easy to follow. The...More
