Visited last July 2015. It was a nice ending to a lovely six days in South Greenland organized by Blue Ice.

This museum is not just a museum, it is a display of active historical exploration of the local area. It changes from year to year (I have visited regularly over several years). It is clear that it doesn't have all the answers and explains really well the way people are working to decipher the local history. It has multiple language... More

For a town of about 160 people this is a fantastic museum memorializing the days when over 3000 people called Bluie West One airfield home.

More of a repository of old memorabilia and a history lesson than a museum, this museum is well worth a visit when you are in town. There are two sections. One concerns the Vikings. It makes a good introduction to the history of the area so try to see it at the beginning of your trip. The second section concerns... More

This great museum is packed with information about the history of Narsarsuaq and its founding as an American airbase. The staff were very friendly and it was a great place to visit.

This little museum is well worth visiting. It has an interesting collection of exhibits based on early Greenlandic life. It is all contained in a little wooden building which was the residence of one f the early settlers. It has steep wooden stairs to the upper floors and a small shop.

Narsarsuaq is a small and remote anchorage port in Greenland. The harbour is rather ugly and commercial and the dirt road leading to the museum climbs and twists from the pier, before levelling out and running parallel to the airstrip. The walk to the museum was made into something of an endurance by the swarms of mosquitoes we encountered in... More
