“Incredible history and stories”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

The history of whaling that this museum holds is a must for anyone visiting Eden. The stories are fascinating. You get to see Old Tom and marvel in the unbelievable things that happened here between whales and the locals. One of many highlights of our visit.

“Every Australian needs to know about Eden's history”
Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

My visit on Sunday 27 October was spent looking at, reading and viewing so many parts of the history of the district of Eden & the role of the whaling and other fishing industries. Set in a high point, it's a well-kept & cared for Museum. A must!

The story of Uncle Tom the killer whale was amazing. Would recommend this attraction to everyone visiting Eden.

“Fantastic - So Much to See”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

A fly-in group of 48 International Fellowship of Flying Rotarians (IFFR) from all around Australia visited the Killer Whale Museum and found the historical displays just amazing, very educational and agreed they could easily have spent more time there soaking up the incredible whale story.

Big congrats to all who had the foresight originally to set up this unique museum!!

Must take the grandkids there on the next visit to the Sapphire Coast!!

“Interesting and educational”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

this museum is a very education attraction with the history of Eden and particularily the killer whales. Stories of the whales through the years is particularily enthralling, and the various exhibits of the craft used by the fisherman is extraordinary. Very well done and unique. Worth the trip and the price of admission. Made an understanding of the area and the interplay of man and nature even more enjoyable.
