This was a very good place to take our son just before we went out for a whale watching trip. We learned about the local whales, the whaling industry and history.

The Whale Interpretive Center is a small building, with a limited, but informative display on the history of whaling, along with factual information on different kinds of whales. A generally worthwhile stop if you are interested in the topic and happen to be passing through Pleasant Bay in Cape Breton.

A wonderful snapshot on these fascinating mamals, almost driven to extinction by other mamals. A small museum, but chock full of interesting facts. See the video. Located just up the road from several whale viewing opportunities.

Our visit started with an interesting but sad video about the history and the inhumane and devastating effect of whaling. Great exhibits showing whale migration patterns, diets, relative sizes, etc. At least one exhibit had sound, Learned about the impact of whaling on populations. There is a nice gift shop attached.
