It's was a Rainey afternoon and it was suggested to go to the whaling museum. It was fascinating and great to learn of the importance of whale oil and the economic effect it had both in its growth but also decline. Definately good to go and u derstamd a little bit of the history of sag and the surrounding areas... 更多
My husband is a big time whaling history buff so we were in search of some area history which we found in abundance. They have special events regarding different aspects of whaling. The scrimshaw was beautiful and a very enlightening 20 minute movie was available for viewing! Would love to see some work done to restore the beautiful old home... 更多
I had no idea that Sag Harbor had such a whaling history. Lots of equipment and harpoons, skeletons and tools were on display. Similar to New Bedford but a tad smaller. The folks were all very friendly and knowledgeable. We spent a fairly rainy day walking main street and the wharf and had a very pleasant time.

very interesting artifacts and information about the whaling age. the winding staircase of the ship's captains former home was stunning. It was like the movie In the Heart of the Sea came to life.

We went to the "50 little things" exhibit. It was interesting learned a little from it. But it's definitely not worth coming back more like... 更多
A terrific walk back in time to the "real" Sag Harbor, where men were men and wives waited patiently for as long as three years for their husbands to return from voyages far & wide. Well worth the price of admission, really a must-see for children and teenagers who may think that Sag Harbor is just about Bentleys and ocean-going... 更多
Sag Harbor Whaling Museum is certified a “National Treasure” and is listed on the “National Register of Historic Places.” It contains the largest collection of whaling equipment in New York. To many the structure housing the museum may be more interesting than the museum itself. The spiral staircase was unique and very interesting. It is rare to see such a... 更多
