Project Planner

Greenland museums as research platforms

Eighteen museums are located in Greenland. With the exception of the Greenland National Museum in the capital Nuuk, these cultural institutions are small with limited facilities andthey focus on culture and history of their local region. However, they are all potential platforms or bases for visiting scientists within pertinent research fields.

Please note, that any research stay at a museum in Greenland must be planned and agreed upon in close cooperation with the museum manager or equivalent responsible person.

Below is a list with pertinent museum information for all towns (~ municipalities) in Greenland:
