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.

The Whaling Museum is temporarily closed, but will be open in the zoological department in periods. The museum may be closed at short notice due to rebuilding.

 

The Whaling Museum will be temporary closed from for the duration of a building and renewal project. Through the long-awaited building project, the exhibition area, as well as the facilities for the general public, will be improved significantly. The museum’s whale catcher «Southern Actor» will be open as usual during the summer season.

The original museum building from 1917 features the animals and birds of the Arctic and Antarctic regions, the main attraction being a full size replica of a blue whale. The museum’s exhibitions and films are entertaining and educational for all ages. There is a special activity room for children.
