It is an old colonial house of 200 years old now reconverted into house museum. Not until that point meets the relation quality/price, for me personally is not worth much worth. The Qaqortoq Museum houses a collection of Tupilaks (talismans) with strange shapes. Also a variety of typical objects of the area, like kayaks, harpoons and clothes, of the Indians of Greenland. A collection of photographs allows visitors to see how life was in the past of the community and on the top floor there are restored rooms where some illustrious personage stayed on occasion.
