Overview

Bring the whole family to the Whaling Museum! The public are welcome to visit the zoological exhibition, where a blue whale hangs from the roof.

A BLUE WHALE HANGING FROM THE CEILING

The museum’s original building from 1917 houses a zoological exhibition with stuffed animals from the polar regions. The main attraction is the large
model of a blue whale hanging from the ceiling.

«WE WERE OUT TO GET WHALES»

This exhibition focuses on themes such as Norwegian discoveries and presence in the Antarctic, cultural meetings in the context of the whaling industry, family life and gender roles. The exhibition is largely based on the museum’s collections, as well as material on loan.

THE MUSEUM SHIP «SOUTHERN ACTOR»

«Southern Actor» was whaling in the Antarctic until 1962. You can go aboard during the summer season. Visit the exhibition about «Southern Actor» at the museum!
