The permanent exhibitions focus on conveying the time from the 1950s onwards, a period when Nuuk truly became the capital of Greenland. Additionally, the museum hosts changing exhibitions and events. Visiting the museum takes you back to the time of the 50s and 60s, when Nuuk was at its peak in becoming the capital.

The Nuuk Local Museum opened its doors to the public in January 2017. It is a unique and cozy museum that features various exhibitions showcasing the city’s history, as well as special exhibitions from various artists, events, lectures, children’s workshops, and much more. Their new exhibition about Nuuk’s History is expected to be ready by the end of 2023.
The museum also includes the Niels Lynge house, where the well-known priest, painter, and poet Niels Lynge and his family lived. A visit to the house offers an authentic insight into a private home from the 1950s and a few years later. It is an unusual and beautiful experience to enter Niels Lynge’s House. Please note that the house is open to the public by appointment.
Nuutoqaq Local Museum’s shop features an exciting selection of products produced by Nuuk’s own locals.
Looking forward to seeing you at Nuuk Local Museum!
