You might feel as if you’ve stumbled into the pages of Moby Dick at this former whale-oil candle factory, where a 14-metre whale skeleton hangs from the ceiling. The space traces the area’s rich whaling history and features an impressive collection of sculpted whalebones. If the life aquatic has you hooked, pick up a few tomes on the subject at the bookstore next door.
