This is a must-see if you are traveling through Kulusuk. It's the private collection of a local family, and it's very extensive and informative. You learn about the East Greenland way of life. Also, you can purchase locally made handicrafts.

Wonderful presentation of local history. Great collection for such a small museum. Very knowledgeable director with many of her own family heirlooms incorporated into the displays. Loved this stop on a beautiful hike in Greenland.

Perched on a rocky outcrop overlooking the town is the little wooden museum containing lots of Greenlandic artefacts and hunting equipment. We were given a quick guided tour round the exhibits by the family who own it which made it much more meaningful.
