The New Bedford Whaling Museum dominates the few blocks of the New Bedford Whaling National Historic Park, but there really is so much to see and appreciate in a relatively small area. The National Park office has informative and creative exhibits which give you a good feel for the flavor of this historic city. The Museum is located on the corner of Johnny Cake Hill which also features the Seamen's Bethel, a lovely little house of worship which is a kind of living museum. As you walk along the walls of the Bethel, you can read the plaques placed there by the families of young men lost at sea during the heady and dangerous days of whaling. The unique pulpit is shaped like a ship's bow...if you love American history and want to walk the cobblestone streets that thousands of brave and hearty seafarers walked a 150 years ago, don't miss the New Bedford Whaling National Historic Park.
