NEW BEDFORD WHALING MUSEUM

The New Bedford Whaling Museum is the world's leading interpreter of the global whaling story.

Our vision is to advance understanding of the profound influence of the whaling industry and the port of New Bedford on the history,economy, ecology, arts, and cultures of the region, the nation, and the world.

We will expand our capacity to tell the stories of the many diverse communities that shared in the creation of this history, through excellence in our collections, scholarship, and all forms of public engagement.

In doing so the Museum will be recognized as a compelling destination that inspires all visitors to reflect on the complex issues that shaped the past, remain critical today, and inform a sustainable future.
