Uummannaq Museum

Northwest Greenland

The excellent Uummannaq Museum is one of Greenland's better town museums and houses a diverse collection featuring displays on the Qilakitsoq mummies, the whaling era, the former marble quarry at Maarmorilik, and Greenlandic history and archaeology. There's also a display on the ill-fated 1930-31 inland ice expedition of German scientist Alfred Wegener, famous for his theory of continental drift.
