The Whaling Museum

Best done early when the doors first open, The Nantucket Whaling Museum is a deep dive into Nantucket’s famous history as a whaling capital in the 18th and 19th centuries. View historical artifacts, gaze up at an entire whale skeleton, and learn courageous tales of the sea! All ages welcome.

Long Version: Nantucket is full of history and The Whaling Museum is the crown jewel of the Nantucket Historical Association’s portfolio of historic homes on public display.  Inquire about walking tours and lectures at the museum and online.
