  • As local who grew up on the East End, I finally made it over to this museum to check it out during the summer. The rooms where there are actual exhibits about whaling are small and limited. However, t...  more »

  • You feel like you are in the book Moby Dick and the relics are all in this museum. Structure is impressive as well as the displays that do require you to actually pause and read instead of merely pass...  more »

  • Was really interesting to see Sag Harbor as the prosperous whaling port it once was. The historic building is gorgeous and the collection was surprisingly large + informative. Not your usual local museum that is more basic entertainment for children on a rainy day ... while children will enjoy it the curation is geared toward adults. Parking can be a challenge though.
  • We visited for a special art show but it seemed much of the space was not open to the public. Maybe they were setting up for another exhibit but it wasn't clear why so much of the space was unavailable for public access.
  • Small museum. Whaling items fascinating.
  • Awesome they have things for kids and a lot of learning
  • Not overly expensive and a nice learning experience for kids.
