This museum has much more in it than expected, definitely worth a visit and a bargain for only $10. The top part of the museum is all about the killer whales and "Old Tom" which is very interesting. The bottom of the museum has a few different rooms dedicated to different things - the war, for example, was one. There... More

Who would have thought that this place would have so much rich history! The whale hunting history is truly remarkable. If you want to get an understanding of the rich culture then get into here.

This was excellent to walk around and see how the fishing industry and shipping used to be. Not over crowded.

We went here with rather mixed emotions given our thoughts on whaling in general, but we were very impressed with the balanced story presented about the history of the 'industry'. And there is a lot more to see of wider historical interest, so we left feeling pleased that we had visited this rather quaint museum (with a good story of... More

An absolute must do as noted by previous reviews. Probably has the best view in the whole of Eden. The gift shop is very well stocked with quality items too.

We learnt all about the history of the area, especially how the killer whales used to work with the whalers to hunt and harpoon larger whales for blubber and other by-products. The skeleton of "Old Tom", the leader of the killer whales, is showcased.

Rather boring with very limited displays. A 10 minute walk around is sufficient. Impressive 50 cent discount for seniors on entry! Impressive LOL
