Not worth the price
Senen_J, Jan 2023
Not worth the price. I expected more. The amount is high with respect to the size of the "Museum". I belueve it is not worth it.

Impressive models but expensive
Vicki_B, Jul 2022
Nice exhibit but thought it was too expensive. Impressive models. Good audio information for true whale fans. Kids would enjoy but parents might be upset about price.
Take time for this and the movie

We waited for the guided tour with Claire and she was amazing. Very informative and also concerning. Stayed for the feature movie which was also very informative and concerning. I highly recommend a visit to this exhibit.
