A natural history museum dedicated to the living whales of the world.
To increase the public's understanding and appreciation of the environment with a special emphasis on whales. The Museum seeks, through education and research in Washington's inland marine waters, to encourage responsible stewardship of this and other marine systems.
The Museum exhibits depict the natural history of the living whale through the interpretation of both art and science. You will see an actual baby gray whale skeleton, fin whale brains, and a comparison of teeth and baleen. Hands-on displays include an interactive computer station and a phone booth in which you can listen to various whale vocalizations. Learn about the killer whales of the Pacific Northwest in our video theater, identify individual whales in the geneology display and see a full grown male killer whale skeleton. Models and artwork in glass, stone and wood complement the gallery to further enhance your appreciation of these wonderful animals.
The Museum also operates a store full of gifts, educational tools, music and books all about whale and other marine mammals.
Some of the store items are even available on-line at our Web site.
