Washington, Friday Harbor
The Whale Museum

In the Pacific Northwest of the United States lives the Southern Resident Community of Orcas, an endangered population of Orcas, sometimes known as "Killer Whales". The Whale Museum, located in beautiful Friday Harbor, Washington, was opened to the public in 1979 as the first museum in the country devoted to a species living in the wild. Today, our museum continues to promote stewardship of whales and the Salish Sea ecosystem through education and research. Enter a place that is a delightful combination of science and education! There are two floors to explore at The Whale Museum. On the first floor, you will encounter our gift shop as well as our newest exhibit area. This accessible exhibit area features: An exhibit honoring Sooke (L-112), a young orca who passed in 2012. An exhibit on the dangers of plastic in the marine environment. An overview of baleen whales. Our Sightings Map Viewing of "Springer's Story" movie.
