Qasigiannguit (Christianshåb, pop. 1 300) is a small comunity located at the shores of Disko Bay, NW Greenland - the oldest danish colony there, founded in 1734.

It´s also home to Greenland's oldest wooden house (1734), the former house of Paul Egede, a danish missionary devoted to the inuit culture. In 1997, it opened as a museum.

During the Summer of 1999, an impressive discovery provided the museum with a collection of archaeological finds from different prehistoric arctic cultures.
