I would have loved to see this museum, but it was closed. Instead I went for a walk in the snowstorm down hospitalroad. There used to be a very big US military hospital (1000 beds). Unfortunately it burned in the early 80's. But there is...More

Don't let the size fool you. It is bigger than it looks. Great cultural history and local history involving the air base. Give yourself about an hour to go through.

This museum does a nice job of representing the history of Narsarsuaq from WWII onwards, and the significance of the air base here from a military perspective. I'd have been interested in learning more about what came before WWII.

We walked into town from the pier, about a 30 min. walk on a paved road, not knowing what the museum or coffee shop would be like. We were so glad we did. The Blue Ice Cafe has good coffee & internet. They also will...More

Great little gem of a place which is worth looking round as it is the only place in town !! It is a place where time has stood still since the troops vacated and left the valley to peace once again!!
