Attended with family. Although a part of it was closed, the kids enjoyed looking at the exhibits and touching everything. Very educational and adult will enjoy it too.

Reasonably priced and loads of information about whales and dolphins, this is a great place to spend an hour or two. Interesting 3D video about whale watching but would probably benefit from more AVs with less reading!

Even though we visited with young adult children on a day when it was very hot this place had enough to keep even them interested. Wish there was more of an aboriginal element as that was the best exhibit.

Kind atmosphere. Staff eager to answer questions about the local Southern Right Whales and marine life. Lots of activities for kids. A down to earth little museum and centre for people interested in whales, whaling history and protection of whales.
