It was a good decision, as the small museum is both interesting, nice and cosy. At this time there was a special exhibition about new and old interpretations of Tupilaks, which there were good written guides to in many languages. I was actually going to the museum shop when I found out that there was a fixed collection on the other side of the store. It also seems interesting, but I missed a little more information about the artists and the context.
Being mid winter, I was the only person that afternoon in the gallery. The young student was very happy to show me around. I found the collection to be excellent. It is a lovely space. more »
