    In this old Whaling Town, the Museum contains the activity of hunting of the whale in free kick. Interesting exhibition of skeletons of whales and polar animals dissected (?). The most interesting, a video of the whale hunt in the 1960s by a whaler from Sandefjord; It captures and cutting on the own ship, the life of the crew on board, the products derived from the whale... Very educational for the children who visit it with a questionnaire and paying attention. The Museum has been them a little old looking but has its attractions. In addition it can be completed with a visit in the port of a whaling ship. Ticket 25 NOK.
