Group Description

Welcome to the New Bedford Whaling Museum's flickr page!

Post your photos of the New Bedford Whaling Museum, its galleries, collections, events taking place within the NBWM and photos of your visit.

Our collection contains over 200,000 artifacts, including 3,000 pieces of scrimshaw (carved whalebone) and 2,500 logbooks (handwritten accounts of whaling voyages), both of which are the largest and most complete collections in the world. The NBWM's Photo Archive contains over 200,000 historic and contemporary images that tell the global story of whaling and local history.

The Museum also houses an extensive collection of fine art, including works by major American artists, such as Albert Bierstadt, William Bradford, and Albert Pinkham Ryder, as well as significant collections of locally produced art, glass, furniture, and other decorative arts that flourished as a result of the wealth that whaling brought to New Bedford in the 19th century.
