The New Bedford Whaling MuseumIn 1915, in the waning light of whaling's final decade, Emily Howland Bourne financed the construction of a museum building to honor her whaling merchant father, Jonathan Bourne, Jr. This marked the first steadfast effort to preserve New Bedford's whaling legacy. Housed here today are the world's largest collections of whaling art and artifacts, spanning seven continents and seven centuries.
