Didn't expect that much from an art museum in a town of less than 5000, but this was a pleasant surprise. The ground floor is filled with really lovely paintings by a European, Emanuel A. Petersen, very evocative of the land and people. I'm sure...More

Very interesting collection of paintings by an early polar painter (European), and a strongly curated collection of contemporary Greenlandic artists. Upstairs is a rotating exhibit. The Cape Dorset prints were beautiful and an important contribution to current printmaking.

A beautiful insight on Greenlandic art from different times and styles. The host is very kind and helpful; he's passionate about his museum. In the attic there's an exposition on famous explorers of the polar regions, impressive!

I could have spent hours in this art museum. It houses a wide range of painting and also other art works, like tupilaks. There is a collection of paintings by Auzias and many books on Greenlandic art.
