Discover the local culture from four millennia ago at Sisimiut Museum. The museum houses the artifacts found after a decade of archaeological excavations and research of the indigenous Saqqaq settlement. You'll see a wide variety of items from this Paleo-Inuit culture, including basic tools, weapons, domestic items, hunting and fishing equipment, money, and sleds. Other exhibits draw on other periods, such as a 17th-century altarpiece, early 20th-century domestic items, and an outdoor section with replicated traditional residences.

  • Sisimiut is really an interesting place and if you want a better understanding of the city definitely pay the museum a visit. Almost all the buildings near it are part of the museum so visit them all.
  • Cool museum, you can find out much about Inuit life and culture, the museum is basically a collection of buildings, originally a town centre - you can walk in each of them and see the interior layouts, read about history, learn about local religion, hunting and a lot more. Well worth visiting.
