I'm a lover of Australian History, and throughly enjoyed my visit to this museum. Dragged the poor boyfriend along with me, but even he found aspects to enjoy. For the low price of entry, wuld recommend.

“HISTORIC EDEN MUSEUM”
Reviewed 5 March 2017

Reasonable entry fee and clean toilets and pleasant shop. The museum is rather interesting with great whaling stories and shipwreck tales. Including learning that Mary McKillop's mother perished in a shipwreck off Eden in the 19th century. The skeleton of the famous Old Tom is amazing, as is his story.

“Great Historical and Visual Experience”
Reviewed 4 March 2017

Staff very friendly and exhibits very good. Great historical overview of the very unique symbiotic relationship experienced between the killer whales and the whalers during the 1800 and early 1900s. The killer whales herded other whales into Two Fold Bay alerting the Whalers by Slapping their Tales in front of the lookouts then cooperated with whalers to gain the a share of the catch. It is good to see whaling ceased in Australia and this museum is a great historical resource of this past industry.

“Great visit to Museum”
Reviewed 2 March 2017

This is really worth stopping at and taking a look. An interesting place full of information about the whaling days and the kids enjoyed it too. There is a skeleton of one of the largest whales from the area.

“Tasteful museum”
Reviewed 27 February 2017 via mobile

The whaling story was tastefully presented and linked to the indigenous people. Nice little museum to pass an hour or so
