  • Very small and very expensive showroom space. Not worth the money. Prefer another visit this

  • Fantastic full size models of the whales hanging from the ceiling. Lovely cafe too. Kids area with colouring and a few hands on bits. 3D goggles too.  more »
  • We went to a reception here and it was lots of fun taking selfies with fake whales. Not sure I'd pay admission though.  more »

  • The only exhibit where you can be in awe of such huge old and ancient creatures. There is no reason for the negative comments at all. If your economics can't handle the cost admission, go somewhere else. I get no sense that this price was out of proportion to the experience and dedication of the exhibit staff. It was a good value.
  • If you like to learn about whales, or just if you like to learn while on vacation, do not skip this exhibit. scale models of whales, a VR experience and really good coffee to end the whole thing.
  • A great place for a quick stop on a rainy day. But be sure to be there early if you like a less crowded place. A lot of information and friendly staff!
  • Great place to take kids. Just seeing the size of the animals. A lot of interactive material where you can learn interesting facts.
  • We were desperately disappointed! The „Museum“ is more a big hall, where life-size models of the whales a hung up next to boards of information’s. We expected obviously a bit more enthusiasm and love in this work (like showing teeth, skeletons, itinerary and models for kids/adults for a better understanding). We and our 7 year old whale-loving son were terribly bored. The entrance fee is way over the limit!! :-(
