We went in for what we thought would be a 20 minute stop and it turned into 90 minutes of info, stories, and fun. Terry was incredibly knowledgeable on all things whale and about the area. I would certainly reccomend a drive into the pavilion.

Terry, the museum whale expert, presented a wonderful tour of the sperm whale exhibit. He is from the Triton area and knows a great deal about whales. This exhibit is worth a visit on your trip to Newfoundland.
