We 4 adults toured the Whale Museum on a cool, drizzly day. It is an easy walk from most lodging and only a block or 2 off the main drag in Friday Harbor. We all felt that the museum is geared towards children, not adults. It took us about 45 minutes to walk through it.

Really interesting place with a really friendly guide! There were two tours that went on. One at 1:30 and another one around 3, I believe. The guide was extremely knowledgeable about all the whales and answered every question that was thrown at him. I would definitely go again

My kids enjoyed learning about whales and other water based animals. It’s a typical museum with a focus on whales. If you want to learn about whales, the local culture then visit the museum.

Nicely done exhibits about whales and other cetaceans and an excellent hour-long film about the impact of noise on the seas to the whales. I learned so much and spent several hours there.

A plethora of amazing information in this compact museum filled with whale skeletons, facts and stories. It offers an excellent comparison of types of whales and dolphins. There are activities for all ages as well as a nice gift shop.
