Qaqortoq Museum
The Qaqortoq Museum is housed in one of the oldest buildings in Qaqortoq, a former blacksmith's workshop from the early 1800s near the main square. The museum's exhibits are dedicated to the Paleo-Eskimo Dorset, Thule and Norse cultures. You can see excellent examples of Inuit fishing boats and hunting equipment, as well as weather-worn Norse artifacts. Of particular interest are the reconstructed "blue" and "red" rooms, where the polar explorer Knud Rasmussen and the aviator Charles Lindbergh slept—the latter while scouting locations where airplanes could stop on Transatlantic routes.
