Inexpensive, but informative museum. Make sure to read the story of Old Tom above his skeleton as you enter. Fascinating and unexpected true story.

Killer Whale Museum is not just about whales - although there is plenty of information about them there! Much fascinating history of the entire region, including the sacrifice of the men and women in two world wars. Well done and beautifully presented.

Great little museum and cheap to visit. You'll come away with a head full of whale facts that you never knew. Not much else to do nearby so would recommend a visit!

My husband and I enjoyed visiting this museum. We were fascinated to learn about how the Killer whales and people worked together to hunt the other whales. Thankfully, whale hunting is banned now, but it's interesting to learn how life used to be. Lots of...More
