Nunatta Katersugaasivia Allagaateqarfialu
Greenland National Museum & Archives

Opening hours

Monday - Friday - 9am-4pm

The Archive is temporarily closed for research services

We have temporarily suspended our research services as staff are engaged in spiral investigation, receive large deliveries of archives from Greenlandic authorities and do extensive registration work. As a result, the Archives is now unable to host researchers for the remainder of 2023.

This applies to all inquiries regarding archival research, in-person visits, guidance and other services for researchers and other archive users.

Requests for personnel records, tax information, diplomas and other public inquiries will be processed as usual, although longer processing times may occur.

Welcome to Greenland National Archives

Greenland’s National Archive was founded as an independent institution in 1982. In 1991 the archive joined the National Museum, and today is part of the joint organisation Nunatta Katersugaasivia Allagaateqarfialu – Greenland National Museum & Archives.


On this website you can find everything you need to know about the records and documents in our collections, ideas of how they can be used, as well as information about the services available at the archives.

This is also where state authorities and institutions in Greenland can find information about the activities of the archives relevant to them.
