The Nunatta Sunakkutaangit Museum might be difficult to pronounce to most, but it certainly will give all visitors an easy day out of learning!

And do you want to hear one of the best aspects? It's FREE - and we LOVE that!

Kids can explore regional collections of historic pottery, ceramics, and porcelain, as well as ivory and bone carvings, and even textiles and tapestries! 

Have you ever wanted to really see how the Inuits lived? Then don't miss those period costumes too!

The museum also has archaeological collections blended with social history exhibits, which is great for those little ones so they can really understand the concept of ancient history, and time.

Kids will can also enjoy learning through the multi media exhibits that include film and video offerings, photography and artwork elements, plus fun collections of vintage toys, games and masks.

    Don't miss this museum when you are in Iqaluit. It is located within walking distance of "downtown". There is a small exhibit and lots of beautiful art work by local artisans or those in the region. I have no idea who the owner is, but assume the individual(s) is a supporter of the Inuit communities and their culture.
