Azores Sea Observatory

Whaling was an active industry in the Azores until the end of the 20th century, with the mammals hunted for their oil and precious ambergris. Located in the Old Whaling Factory, the Azores Sea Observatory (Whaling Museum) showcases a wide variety of machinery used in bygone days, as well as collections related to whaling in the Azores.
