Nice to know
Nuuk is filled with cultural references! Besides the five museums, the National Theatre and the Cultural House Katuaq the city is filled with statues, art and wall paintings - and most often, the motive is a reference to Inuit lore and history.
Learn about Greenland through music, art, theatre and events
Nuuk has a vibrant cultural scene with music, dancing, theatre, art and events. So whether you are into concerts, exhibitions or drama there are lots in store for you.
As a guest you can experience Greenland's Culture House Katuaq in various ways; Katuaq is the name of a traditional Greenlandic drum and describes the shape of the building seen from above. Katuaq houses a café serving high quality food often using local ingredients. Katuaq also offers you exhibitions, concerts, theater and dance productions, cinema and a 5-star conference center.
Look to the National Theatre of Greenland to see both traditional, historical and contemporary productions or maybe visit Hans Lynge's House to step into the preserved home of the adored artist. Finally, do not cheat yourself of the experience of seeing the national costume being sown at the Econo Museum Kittat.
If you visit in June you get a chance to see a full day show of Greenlandic cultural arts as the city celebrates the Nation of Greenland. The date is 21st june - keep up for other events.
