Oceanographic Museum - the Whale


In the west wing of the Museum, the Hall of Applied Oceanography, renamed the Whale Hall in 2004, displays a series of skeletons of marine mammals.

The emblem of this hall is the 20 metre skeleton of a fin whale (balaenoptera physalus).

Brilliant images from the Oceanographic Museum Jilly, the creatures of the deep have always fascinated and terrified me all at the same time!

This is SO Monaco, Jilly, you couldn't pick a better choice. Your camera does wonders managing the low light - a great indoor shot.

That's a really impressive 'animal'! I also like the hall where it's displayed. Looks so Victorian. :)

Nice interpretation and a reminder to me to go and revisit the New Bedford Whaling Museum.
