Dedicated to the days when Nantucket was the whaling capital of the world, the Nantucket Whaling Museum is a must-see for history buffs and everyone interested in the culture of Nantucket. From ship's logs to authentic whaling tools and interactive exhibits the Whaling Museum has something for everyone. Great for families with children and perfect for rainy days. Don't miss the rooftop deck for sweeping views over downtown and Nantucket Harbor. The Whaling Museum also hosts special events such as the Festival of Wreaths and the Festival of Trees around the winter holidays. A quickly-growing favorite is the Summer Sunset Series, where there is a concert up on the roof each Monday in the summer.
