Museums and Palaces

The Whaling Industry Museum is currently housed in the premises of the former Whaleboat Factory, where by-products were manufactured from the whales that were caught in the course of what was one of the main activities of the archipelago of the Azores in the not too distant past. The factory was in operation from 1946 to 1984.

The museum, which has been afforded official international recognition as one of the best industrial museums of its kind, exhibits boilers, furnaces, machinery and other equipment used in the processing of whales into oil and flour.
