Greenland National Museum and Archives Tours

Greenland National Museum and Archives
The Greenland National Museum and Archives offers a deep dive into the culture, landscape, and ecology of this frozen island nation. Inside, artifacts and displays elucidate Greenland’s 4,500-year history, highlighting the country’s indigenous people, architectural landmarks, and geological wonders. 

The Basics
The museum offers galleries lined with ancient artifacts unearthed during archaeological digs, Greenlandic handicrafts, and local artwork. Learn about the first Arctic Stone Age cultures and explore exhibits that document the Greenland’s rich history, including a collection of female mummies that were unearthed at the Qilakitsoq archaeological site. Other exhibits cover Inuit culture and offer a chronological history of immigration and settlements on the island. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The National Museum is a must-see for culture and history buffs.
  • All exhibits are written in English and Greenlandic. 
  • Dress warmly for winter visits; the museum is divided among four different buildings within walking distance of each other. 

How to Get There
The National Greenland Museum is located at Hans Egedesvej 8 in the capital city of Nuuk, roughly 15 minutes by road from Nuuk Airport. While public transportation is limited in the city, rental cars and taxis are available. 

When to Get There
The museum is free during winter, although it has limited hours (1pm to 4pm) and is closed Mondays. In summer, the museum is open daily from 10am to 4pm. 

What to See Near Nuuk
Greenland’s capital city is known for its rugged nature. After you visit the National Museum, explore the area’s coastal fjords, glaciers, and icebergs on a boat excursion from Nuuk Harbor, a private glacier cruise, or an ice fjord hike. During winter, a nighttime ocean cruise is one of the best ways to see the famed Northern Lights.
