This museum is a huge favourite of ours and we try to visit at least once a year. The exhibits are beautifully displayed and there is plenty here to fascinate the entire family.
First there is a short film which introduces you to the historical and cultural impact of whaling in this region during the late 1800s and then you walk out into a huge room which has a gigantic whale skeleton suspended from the ceiling. It only gets better, as you continue up the stairs.
There's a lovely and well stocked gift shop, and although there isn't a cafe here, there is a coffee machine in the main area. (A cafe would be a great addition though.)
The cobbled streets around the building are also well worth a stroll, and it's especially worthwhile crossing over the road and visiting the Seaman's Bethel....such an interesting and historical place!!
Top marks for this gem.
