A Day in the Life of a Whaling Voyage

April 22 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join Nancy Gentile of the New Bedford Whaling Museum and Capt. Michael Taylor, a British merchant mariner, for “A Day in the Life of a Whaling Voyage,” an illustrated presentation that takes you into the world of a 19th-century New England whale ship. Learn what life was like aboard these mighty whaling vessels, watch a real-life demonstration of the harpoons that whalers used, and see baleen taken from the massive jaws of a whale.

This free program is sponsored by the Friends of the Fall River Public Library.
