The House
The house was built during World War 1, while Knud Rasmussen took place on the 2nd Thule Expedition, and was finished in 1917, this was not a summer residence for the family in the traditional sense, but first and foremost a home of labor for the future so famous polar explorer.

Knud Rasmussen´s widow, Dagmar Rasmussen, transferred the whole lot of reason, house and contents to the municipality (then Torup parish) in 1939 has since served as a memorial and museum.

The style is inspired by contemporary British "cottage" style with curved dormers, bay window and a distinctive, hipped thatched roof. The house was designed by Helge Bojsen-Moller, who was one of the country's prominent architects, and his election was hardly a coincidence, since he was already at that time had been in charge of several public buildings in Greenland.


The main house's floor plan has a closed, almost square shape. The original house was a few years added a small annex, which include was adapted for a more undisturbed's study of Knud Rasmussen. The two buildings were later connected by a long corridor, which is currently used for temporary exhibitions.
