The museum is split in three parts: Art, History & Nature.

The first part is focussing on history of whale hunting and glorifying Madeiran whale hunting history/whale hunters.
This part seems very outdated and even when showing every cruel detail of whale hunting it is not reflecting its part of the extermination of whole species. Instead it's praising the brave men of commercial whale hunting.

The second part is focussing on nature with information on dolphins and whales. It's not providing too much information, but can be good for kids.

The third part is showing some paintings of whales.

For the visit you get audio guides that are more or less automatically providing information based on where you are at the museum. Unfortunately it has some technical issues that are quite annoying.

Would not recommend except for fans of whale hunting.

Dear Sir, We are sorry that the visit to the Madeira Whale Museum did not meet your expectations. However, we appreciate your opinion. The Madeira Whale Museum was created on 1990 after 40 year of whaling, being this history a reality in Madeira. Not every historical fact is motive of pride but this does not invalidate that we doesn’t know about it. Whaling history cannot be told without social-economic contextualization from that time (1940-81) and is very important that we have the historical facts conscience and, as well, their consequences, for that we do not commit the same mistakes as before. The synchronization of the audioguide with the zones is made rapidity, because the sound automatically turns on depending on the area, and so, it is necessary to do it calmly. The current context of cetaceans in Madeira and part of the scientific work carried out at the institution is represented in the second exhibition room with 3D films. It is part of the museum’s mission to make known all the work done for the conservation of cetaceans in Madeira Archipelago. Thank you for your contribution Best Regards

Interesting type of museum. I found the first section very interesting. This is on the history and people of Madeira starting and finishing whaling. If you know what whaling is you should not be shocked.
The second section on the animals is interesting but in parts very "preachy" about human actions on the sea and planet. Bit of a switch off.
The cafe was fine and you can sit out on the balcony.

Comprehensive section about the whaling industry (1941-1981) - although audio guide a little confusing. Second room focused on sealife, with life sized models and commentary on them.
We visited on a saturday afternoon and the cafe only had drinks, ice creams and a few snacks rather than the range of meals advertised.

We went there in hope that it would tell a story of whaling with an ecological message. It is okay to tell about difficult parts of history however, the exhibition was lacking any critique of the industry. Multiple times it was emphasised how brave, intelligent and amazing whalers were and the whole aspect of cruel killing of a defensless animal was pushed completely aside. I didn't see any information of the catastrophical impact of whaling on natural environment. The whole act of killing whales was presented as a heroic act done by courageous men, which for me was a bit disgusting.

The second exhibition was focused only on sea mammals, which was a relief. It seemed not to be very detailed and rather for younger visiting, yet we didn't have enough time to go through all of it, so maybe we missed some more interesting parts.

The Museum makes the transition from whale hunting to cetacean conservation, which transmits the work that is currently done in Madeira and by the museum itself.

We found the Whaling Museum was a bit disappointing, suffering from the widespread fault of putting technology above content, with too many videos. These had a radio commentary through the provided headsets, but moving a little out of position could lead to them switching to that for another display and then restarting the original one. There were some interesting artefacts, but for a museum devoted to something that only took place for about 40 years (1941-81) it felt overblown. In the second main hall, the videos were unnecessarily in a rather wonky 3D, and included an explanation of the Gulf Stream narrated by “a mermaid” - very 1990s, when the museum opened. There was insufficient space given to the negative aspects of whaling, and to wider issues around sustainable (or otherwise) fishing. There's a small car park for visitors behind the museum.

I knew from other reviews that this would be a museum on whaling as well as just whales, but found it really interesting. I am a huge whale nerd and there was so much detail. While the whaling information is harrowing, it is preserved really well and it is worth preserving it even in this unpleasant detail. I am from the UK, which has a much darker and deeper history with whaling which we pretend didn't happen, so it is good to see this part of history being preserved. The audio guide is great as is the hall on whale evolution and with various skulls, and I'm not sure I've seen a public collection as varied as this before. It would have been nice to have some info on current science e.g. any actual recordings by scientists and photo ID with information about local individual animals and populations.

We came to visit since it was raining outside. The museum in itself is in good condition but we did not expect it to be mostly on whale hunting. It is good to explain the practices that were used years ago by whale hunters and how was used the whale itself after it was killed. However, glorifying the fact that it was a difficult job and that “hopefully, no man died while hunting” was a bit indelicate. This museum should focus more on raising awareness about sea life and why we should protect it at all cost rather than anything else.
Overall disappointment.
Also, 10€ for the entrance it too pricy

Whaling happened, times have changed and now it is important to educate why it is inappropriate. This museum does the opposite and glorifies this sad part of Madeiran history. Celebrating the names of the whalers should not be done.

The section on the science of the whale is more interesting, but the films would be better just in normal imaging rather than a poor attempt at 3D. No hands on sections so quite dull for young children. Wouldn't recommend or go back.

The science room shows the work done by the Museum regarding the cetacean’s conservation. The signalization, not to touch is for the safety of visitors, some skulls are complete with teeth, which are very sharp. In the 2 exhibition rooms of the museum, you have found several touchscreens, which were at your disposal to use, both by adults and children. The boat and the submarine are very popular by the children. Best Regards The Madeira Whale Museum team

Really interesting to learn about the whale hunting industry in Madeira and how it developed. Liked the old black and white films of how they caught and processed the whales and learning about all the uses the meat and oil was put to.
Bit sad to hear how many whales were killed but impressed by the bravery of the men who went out in small boats to capture these huge animals.
We got the service bus 113 from Funchal to Canical and it took about 1hr 15mins. Some hairy twists and turns on the roads but passed through lots of small towns we wouldn't have seen from the motorwary.
