The Nunatta Sunakkutaangit Museum is a museum of Nunavut history and Inuit culture. It is located in Nunavut's capital of Iqualuit.[1][2] Two employees of Canada's Department of Indian Affairs started the museum in 1969.[3] A Hudson's Bay Company building was moved on tracks from Apex to Iqualuit to be made into the museum.[4]
