Amazing history on show and some new facts for me learned. Displays are well presented. Don’t miss the film on the local area and whale hunting. Old Tom was impressive. The shop had some great books on offer. Kids liked the exhibit.

The museum is a credit to its community in that it presents an industry long-past and often seen with derision! The Eden Killer Whale Museum deals with the subject of Whaling in a beautiful and historically correct way. Excellent facility kid-friendly and educational!
