Ballenera Quintay

5/5
1 Reviews
Exhibition
Address: Am Hafen, Quintay, Chile

What people are saying:

Except for bad weather, the museum is open every day at 11:00 a.m. and is located at the end of a short coastal short circuit in Quintay cove (with clear signs). The space where the museum is located is a restored old Quintay whaling boat; this place is divided into 5 sections covering different topics related to whales, some of which are incomplete or under construction as of January 2020. There are two kinds of materials in English and Spanish, but there are at least 4 of the 5 rooms, and the small room has audiovisual materials. The facilities have free bathrooms.

    Eerie history, lovely museum

    This is a very cute museum that accounts the brutal slaughter of whales in this region. However, this eeriness is balanced with a room with nice illustrations and legends about whales from around the ...
