... to the fascinating ties New Bedford has to Japan and Alaska, and the influences of 19th century new Americans from Portugal and Cape Verde, this was a fantastic afternoon for all of us--teens and kids included!
Good for children as the enormity of the whale skeletons and the world's largest ship model-- you can walk around on its two levels-- are unique.
