Well structured museum and a must visit
Jun 2021
Do yourself a favour if you are passing through Eden and spend an hour at this museum.
Quite well structured exhibits, historical photos and story boards setting out the exploits of the whalers and their killer whale compatriots during the 1800's to around 1930's.
The lower floor is more dedicated to the historical timber getting industry around Eden.

Around an hour is likely sufficient time to do justice to this unusual museum

Well worth a visit.

I highly recommend this delightful museum. It shares the unique local story of whaling and the relationship between the killer whales and the whalers.
The entrance fees are very reasonable. We were treated with a informative tour by a volunteer who took time away from his accounting work and generously shared his knowledge with us making sure we could appreciate as much of the displays as we could after we arrived close to closing time.
We left planning to come back when the whales are visiting.
The museum displays are accompanied by interesting handwritten explanations that can be shared by all the family.
Thank you to all involved

Great place to visit
May 2021 • Couples
To be honest we only went here as it was pouring with rain.
We really enjoyed our visit.
They have a documentary in the theatre which gave some great information on the area.
The museum itself was very interesting and we both learnt quite a bit about whaling.
It would be a great place to take children too.
Definitely would recommend a visit rain or shine.

Nice summary of town
May 2021
Nice place to visit, especially (as noted by another review) if you walk around town after, as you're able to know the importance of each site.

Great little museum about whaling and town of Eden.
Apr 2021
Nice museum that showed the history of whaling in Eden and a bit about the own history. There were enough displays to educate you about the whaling industry and how humans and animals worked together for mutual benefit. The displays were simple enough that people old and young can understand. We spent about an hour in the museum so for the price of $12 adults and $5 for kids it was quite reasonable. Gift shop was typical. Good experience and well worth the admission price.

Interesting enough

Some of the displays seemed a bit dated. There could of been a segment on what the oil was used for and our dependence on it. A lot of assumed knowledge.
