See a 12 m (40 ft) whale skeleton and learn why humpbacks make an annual journey all the way from Alaska to Hawaii at Whalers Village Museum. The museum also offers the chance to go back in time and explore the world of whalers. Admire the collection of 19th-century scrimshaw--drawings carved on whale teeth, and marvel at the replica of a ship forecastle, where whalers would live during expeditions of up to five years. Be sure to pause and take in the view of the ‘Au‘au Channel, which is one of the most heavily-populated whale areas in Hawaii. A key habitat for the North Pacific Humpback Whales, the region is protected as a Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary. After the museum, grab a bite to eat at a nearby restaurant or enjoy an evening stroll through some of the village's more than 90 shops. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Lahaina holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Whalers Village Museum and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
Whalers Village Museum Reviews
22年前、カアナパリリゾートのホテルのガーデンで結婚式をした際にホエラーズビレッジを訪れミュージアムを観ました。確かラハイナの捕鯨のストーリやクジラの骨などが展示されていた記憶が有ります。昨年20年ぶりでここに行きましたが博物館のあった場所はすっかりショッピングテナントに変貌、20年前の方が気のせいか華やかで活気があったような気がします。 more »22 years ago, I visited Howlers village when I had a wedding ceremony at the hotel garden in Carnapalisote and saw the museum. There is certainly a memory of the whaling story of Lahaina and the bone of the whale were exhibited. I went here Buri 20 years ago, but the place where the museum was was transformed into a shopping tenant completely, and I feel that it was gorgeous and lively because of the nature in 20 years old.
Great shopping area which was right next to our hotel (The Westin). Shopping area had just about everything you might want to take back to mainland. Great area to people watch from all over the world. more »
Sadly the museum was being refurbished, but a lady who was on the welcome desk was able to provide an excellent description of the work which went on at the museum.
A good learning experience with great artifacts.
