  • Nice modern museum with first half the sad story of the hunting and in the second part the protecting of them. We where there with our five year old daughter and she was very impressed with the story....  more »
  • Such a museum had fun in Krimpen a/d Lek due. You have to to madeira. Good detailed account of the how and why of the walvistvangst. Technical, economic and social. Good working audio guide. A missing detail is how many whales are killed there in those 40 years.
