  • We have enjoyed the Museum gave us a good perspective of what the olden times and utensils used. It was very interesting:)

  • We were on Sunday in this museum. On this day, the admission was free, but also here €2 per person in any case would have paid off. The Museum is very interesting and very nicely designed. The hand work on the gallery in the glass cases are particularly fascinating. Carved from whale bone and teeth. Although it was also bitter / is. Until the whales are killed, and from the remains of one carving whales again... The film, of each half (?) Hour there shown, accompanied a whaling around 1970.

  • This small museum keeps the memory whaling community of this area, of the techniques used in "whaling". The space is in a good mood, with several references, and recollections of this time, interesting and required to know the history of this site though keep falling short of expectations.
