Local museums in Greenland

Out of Greenland’s 18 towns 14 have local museums. Almost all of them are located in older parts of the towns where they are housed in historical buildings from the colonial period, usually the old house of the trade manager. There is also a local museum in Kangerlussuaq, the history of which is closely linked to the establishment of the American base.

These museums facilitate either archaeological, ethnological and/or historical research, collect contemporary data and archives, host exhibitions, and disseminate to the public.
