  • My kids love wandering around this place. Nice place to spend the day with fun activities for the kids to do and lots to learn and see. Nice tourist destination. If you are lucky you get to pat one of the Oddball type dogs.
  • 5 star attraction with lifelike and real period time artifacts and samples. Loads of fun events during the nights. Beautiful views for photographers. So much to see and explore so be ready to spend hours without being bored. One advice - don't rush it. Just immerse in it. We went on a cool rainy day - perfect and serene! !!
  • Visited on a sunny winters day which was beautiful. We enjoyed perusing the displays, taking photos and learning about the rich maritime history of the area. The sound and light display was good, however, we thoroughly recommend taking a cushion as the church pew style seating quickly gets very uncomfortable.
  • Really nice re-creation of life in the mid-1800s. The museum was great, with lots of artifacts. The mini workshops entertained lots of kids and was interactive. Cannons at the place were also quite interesting.
  • The light and sound show is a great gateway into the history of whaling. Highly recommended to families. Cold on winter night's, so layer up!
