  • It is a very interesting museum that allows to recover historical buildings and spread marine biology. You need support to enrich the exposure (which tastes little) and make it known to everyone

  • Historic place to know; up to 16 whales were held daily and about 1,000 people work at this company. Company that developed between the 1950s and 1960s.

  • Very well preserved place with good expositions about the Whaling Factory. The entrance fee is very cheap and it has nice viewpoints.
  • You have to work at this place to get a deeper and more meaningful understanding of the significance of whaling then and what whales mean to us today...with the exception of 'scientific whaling '
