Ilulissat Museum Reviews
Il serait vraiment utile que l’hôtesse d’accueil prenne la peine, d’une part de dire bonjour, d’autre part de prévenir les visiteurs tardifs que s’ils veulent visionner le film et le documentaire, une... more »It would be really helpful for the hostess to take the trouble, on the one hand to say hello, on the other hand to warn late visitors that if they want to watch the film and the documentary, an hour of visiting will not be enough. We were stunned along with other visitors when the hostess arrived next to us without uttering a word and turned off the video player. We were so engrossed in the film that this way of doing it was really a cold shower. It is obvious that the museum must close at the specified time, that is normal, but there are still basic rules of politeness. We were not driven back to the exit but dunded out. This small old-time museum contains lots of exciting information, the black and white film: Palo's wedding is beautiful. shame.
Flot beliggenhed og bygning midt i byen. Meget informativ og med nogle dejlige kortfilm på anden sal. Ved betaling af entré får man også adgang til byens kunstmuseeum more »Nice location and building in the middle of the city. Very informative and with some lovely short films on the second floor. Admission to the city's Kunstmuseeum is also available upon payment of the entrance fee.
