This museum has well documented the history of whaling in times gone by & has excellent displays & artefacts, is well laid out with stunning views of the bay. It is well worth a visit & would highly recommend to all visitors to Eden.

So much to learn about the whaling past of Eden! Very interesting displays and artefacts and a fantastic view from the building to boot. Worth a visit!

We went to the museum after we had breakfast and spent nearly 2 hours walking around watching videos and reading the information. It's really worth an hour or more to read the history of the town and the foundling family still living in the town

Absolutely love all the whaling history. Old Tom was truly amazing & the icon of the museum. I loved that I got to see our hotel in the cinema & learn of its history. Volunteers are well informed and friendly.

Have passed this attraction for decades whilst travelling further North or preoccupied with fishing. Adverse weather made fishing impossible so I finally visited the Museum. Wonderful, engaging, informative displays that interest children and adults alike. Will be back!!!

Most enjoyable and informative experience. Was awestruck by the actual sze of the skeletal remains and documented experiences of whalers. Unbelievable to see the boats used to harpoon the whales but glad it’s not done anymore. Great for historical info. Would not have missed it....More
