As part of one of the largest whale sanctuaries on the planet, Samana shows great pride in their part to help the large mammals. Part of that pride has led to the Whale Museum, an entire museum dedicated to whales, their lives, and the role they play in the global ecosystem.


The Whale Museum offers exhibits that any environmentalist, whale lover, or curious person is sure to enjoy. In addition to the many exhibits featuring migration patterns and life as a whale, the centerpiece of the museum is the forty foot humpback whale skeleton.
