Museu dos Baleeiros
Whalers’ Museum Get to know all about one of the most important activities in the history of the island of Pico and the Azores: whaling. At Lajes do Pico, you can now visit the Whalers’ Museum installed in three old houses where the whalers used to keep their boats and an old blacksmith’s forge, a set of buildings dating from the 19th century that still preserve many of their original features.

Also on display in the museum is a collection of the tools and equipment used in whale hunting, as well as carved and engraved pieces made from the bones and teeth of whales, a popular form of art known as “scrimshaw”.
