  • This museum is housed in ancient houses at the foot of the Church. It presents the life of the Inuit and Danish communities in the past.

  • A museum where you can pretty much go in and see the houses as they made it back in the days. The layout of the house is also interesting as well as the materials that they're made of. Very informative.
  • This is actually the main church close to the harbour. Beautiful views from the church. When I went to the church, it appeared closed. However a friend of mine managed to get inside and I saw the pics. It was absolutely beautiful and I regret not seeing it myself. Please do try to enter this building and see inside with your own eyes. Sisimiut is one of the most beautiful places I have seen.
