This museum has a very big Collection of Emanuel Petersens paintings. He might not be a great artist but his paintings is showing the Greenland that was in the old days and therefore an important part of greenlandish culture. The museum even shows contemporary art and is absolutely worth a visit
With so much to offer, a museum is not the first place to go in Ilulissat. We went there because the entry is included in the town museum and weren't dissappointed. The first floor features a variety of paintings from the danish painter Emanuel Petersen who mainly painted greenlandic motives. The top floor features a changing exhibition of local artists...
The guy Ole managing the museum is friendly welcoming and knows a lot. He speaks English and does his best to answer your questions. The. Museum shows some classic art with Greenlandic motives. The upstairs usually have modern exhibitions that changes four times a year. Also has a little gift shop with nice posters and post cards.
