Centrally located close to train station. Recommend a visit if you are on the Steam Ranger. Educational for adults and children. Lots of interactive displays and challenges for the children. Very interesting local history and especially of whaling. Important support for Sea Shepherd's work. They also have the latest info on whale sightings.

Well located near the railway station and horse drawn tram, this centre has some great exhibits, some interactive, obviously mostly on whales and whaling. There’s a small gift shop with all sorts of marine souvenirs, not only to do with whales and not over priced. Admission fees are also reasonable. It’s great for children and it’s also a source of information on local whale sightings. We’ve been visiting it for years and feel a little bit of revamping would not go astray.

We found this to be a very interesting visit to learn the history of whaling in the Victor Harbor area. There are three floors of displays. The top floor is for school children .
