When the past and modern times walk aside

In Caniçal, within an amazing landscape you will find the incredible and modern Whale Museum. The Whale Museum is not only perfect for children but also for adults. Mounted with the latest technologies, the Whale Museum exhibits the history of whale hunting, banned in the 80’s but very important until then. With a remarkable collection of artefacts and real size whale model, the Whale Museum is now an important part of these giants preservation efforts and provides a detailed overview on how dangerous the hunting was, when this activity was the way of living of many of Madeira Island’s fishermen.
