Madeira Island Travel Guide

Whale Museum

Whale Museum

On the East coast of the island of Madeira, in the little fishing village of Canical, the Whale Museum chronicles the rise and fall of the whaling industry that was a vital part of the island's economy for many decades, right up until 1982. The exhibits include photographs, hunting implements, a life-size whale model, a fishing boat, and objects carved by local fishermen from the bones and teeth of whales. The Madeira Whale Museum is currently closed for renovations, and information is not available as to when it will re-open.
