Sisimiut Museum is co-signatory on a nomination for a UNESCO World Heritage Site submitted in January 2017. In the summer of 2017 we hosted a UNESCO delegation.
Sisimiut Museum displays some of the most important archaeological finds from the Aasivissuit-Nipisat area, including Greenland’s oldest dog jaw, found on a Saqqaq summer camp.
In 2018 it was decided that Aasivissuit-Nipisat is officially a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
