Whalers Village Museum
2435 Kaanapali Pkwy, Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii

In the 19th Century, whaling was the number one commercial activity in Lahaina, and this museum houses interesting artifacts and other memorabilia from this once thriving local industry. You’ll learn what life was like for a “whaleman” in the mid 1800s by examining a detailed re-creation of a whaling boat’s cramped quarters, a large collection of harpoons, and by reading the actual journals of whale boat commanders. There’s also a massive skeleton of a 40-foot sperm whale on display to give you a sense of the enormity of these powerful animals of the deep. Be warned, however, that this museum features graphic images in photo and film of whales being killed and prepared for commercial use, so exercise caution if anyone in your group is sensitive to this subject matter.
