New Bedford Whaling Museum


Ahoy, Junior Captain Ahabs! The New Bedford Whaling Museum provides a well-done, comprehensive site covering all aspects of American whaling. This site is a pleasure to amble through if you love the lore and legend of late eighteenth century sailing ships, trade, and whaling. Click on the Research Library for popular topics such as an "Overview of American Whaling," and "Heroes in the Ships." Click On-Line Museum Exhibits for extraordinary Flash presentations such as "William Bradford: Sailing Ships & Arctic Seas" and "Pacific Encounters." Their website is the next best thing to actually visiting the Museum.
