Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

The skeleton of a massive whale leads the way to the Whale Center of the Pacific on the second floor of Whalers Village.

Here you can learn about the hard life of whalers during the 19th-century Moby-Dick era: a replica of their living quarters, as well as their tools and equipment, letters and business papers, and other artifacts are on display. Many historical photos illustrate how the whalers chased and captured these giants of the deep and how they processsed their catch while out at sea. Several short films run continuously, including one about Hawaiian turtles and the folklore surrounding them. During humpback-whale season, docents lead informative talks about these great migratory creatures at 11 am on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
