The Whaling Museum Mar 21, 2010
This museum is full of fantastic information and is one of many National Parks in the National Parks system.

It looks small from the outside, but once you walk in and make it past the lobby there are hallways to explore that have a lot of interesting information about the history of whaling and the importance of the waterfront in New Bedford.

The park is a must for a National Park enthusiast. New Bedford was an important part of early Massachusetts history and culture. It is mostly known as a former whaling community, and is where Herman Melville was inspired to write Moby Dick.

This National Park is spread out so be prepared to do a little walking.
