Whales: Giants of the Deep
“Whales: Giants of the Deep” brings visitors closer than ever to some of the mightiest, most massive, and mysterious mammals on Earth. Featuring life-size models, interactive exhibits, and films—as well as more than 20 stunning whale skulls and skeletons—the family-friendly exhibition also reveals the history of the close relationship between humans and whales, from the traditions of Maori whale riders to the whaling industry and later rise of laws protecting whales from commercial hunters. Originally developed at Te Papa Tongarewa, the national museum of New Zealand, the exhibition also features rarely viewed specimens from the museum’s own world-class collections.
