Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Update - No longer gold coin donation. Disappointed as this seemed appropriate for what was provided and allowed us more visits, now $5 for adults, $4 concessions and $15 a family.

This small facility is informative but mainly based on static, man-made information displays rather than historical material. There is a genuine whale skull which is interesting but a bit more "stuff" would be good.

Great rainy day activity for anyone - no kids required (although they would also really enjoy it)! A lot to look at, understand and learn from. Would recommend to every visitor to our beautiful town.

Now part of the visitors centre the museum is now a little smaller but no longer ticketed but gold coin donation only which is much better due to its small size.

When we visited Victor Harbour it was 40 degrees so we were looking for any indoor (and air conditioned) activities. The Whale Centre was an interesting way to spend our time. It has an interesting collection of items and information on the history of whales and whaling and a large portion of it is dedicated to saving whales and the work that Greenpeace are doing which I really liked. Worth stopping in

A really interesting collection of exhibits on the local whaling industry. Lots of interactive displays which kids would really enjoy. You can tell that a lot of time and effort has been put in by the volunteers who run the centre. Great value for money

Was something fun and interesting to do with the kids. Also have a good selection of gifts or momento items that can be purchased in the shop.
Would definitely recommend checking it out

A lot of time and effort has gone into the displays and planning of the premises. Lots to take in and see. The staff are very informative and friendly, and the quality of the souvenirs was good. Well done whale centre.

I had high expectations and unfortunately it just didn’t match up. Staff were friendly and we did enjoy parts. We had however expected to “touch and feel” some sea life but there was just a few empty turtle shells and a couple turtles in a tank inside a small class room on the top floor. We were in and out in less than 30 minutes. The sand with fossils was fun for my 10 year old and the kids area was cool for younger kids. It was worth the visit, just thought there would be... more.

We found this Centre very educational ,there are lots of artifacts to look at some a bit gory but that is part of Whaling .
