Thanks to the Smithsonian Museum Day and the town of New Bedford promoting tourism by not charging for parking on weekends, we got to visit the New Bedford Whaling Museum for just the cost of gas - which was less than an a 1/4 of a tank!!! Gotta love a deal like that!
I had been to this museum in elementary school and it is actually one of the only field trips that I remember from school - ironically the other was to the New England Aquarium, guess I had teachers that liked marine biology!
We had a great time and learned a lot about our local and cultural history, along with the seeing some incredible art work and enjoying this historic downtown area.
My favorite was the 18th Century Peep-Show ~~~ which is not what you might think!!!
When you look in you see....
