  • Excellent Museum, at the level of the best, and for an incredibly cheap price: € 2. Is a testimony to the memory whaling community that matters to preserve and show. I'm glad you do. The high point of the Museum, to me, is the 1970 documentary that portrays all the experience that art and community. Despite the images of the killing itself be shocking today, we must remember the entire context of the time and watch without judging. Were difficult lives that are part of the history of the Acores and of our history too. Mandatory visit.

  • This regional Museum has a small sample of the estate, Whaler through artistic achievements in whale parts such as teeth and bones, as well as objects associated with the hunting of these animals and transforming them in consumer products. It is still possible to see a documentary of 70 years ("The Hunt") which gives a good contribution to the perpetuation of memory about the practice of (extinct) hunting of these animals.
