Whaling Museum Soundings

By Gayle Hargreaves

Dive into the world of whales, the dramatic story of whaling and its impact, and the maritime history of Southcoast Massachusetts at the New Bedford Whaling Museum and right here: on Whaling Museum Soundings. We'll keep you posted on our latest exhibitions and programs, and news from the wider world we think you might find interesting.

If you visit our campus at 18 Johnny Cake Hill in New Bedford, Massachusetts, you can stroll down cobblestone streets where Frederick Douglass and Herman Melville once walked, marvel at massive whale skeletons, learn how Yankee whalers sailed the seven seas, and see how famous maritime artists portrayed their voyages. See conservation of America's longest painting - now in progress. Enjoy hands-on fun in the Museum’s Casa dos Botes Discovery Center, and climb aboard the world’s largest ship model, the Lagoda – a half-scale model of a 19th century whaling vessel. Your Whaling Museum admission receipt is good for two consecutive days and includes the historic Mariners' Home located across the street on Johnny Cake Hill.
