Housed in three original 19th century boat houses, the Whalers’ Museum is one of the few remaining museums of this sort in Europe. Apart from exhibiting an interesting scrimshaw collection (engravings in sperm whale ivory), it also has a small library with documents, maps, copies of travel notebooks and also a blacksmith’s tent, where visitors can see how several metallic utensils used in whale hunting were made.
