Upernavik Old Town Museum

The entire historical district of Upernavik is basically an outdoor museum. The museum itself, Greenland’s oldest, is a real surprise. Most interesting is the original qajaq ensemble complete with harpoon, throwing stick, bird skewer, knife, seal-stomach float (to prevent seals diving or sinking after being hit) and a line made of leather thong.
