  • What a great find! Ms Lucy and Angel were so nice to chat with!! We only had time for the short film but we're glad we stayed to watch it! If you find yourself in the area, stop by! I highly recommend it!!
  • great for tourist passing through New Bedford! :D
  • One of the best values for the money. Their glass collection is impressive.

  • Supporting the National Park Service is nearly the entire downtown of New Bedford. Interpretive signs abound amongst plenty of other activities and the epic Whaling Museum.
