Whales: Giants of the Deep will transport visitors to the vibrant underwater world of the mightiest animals on Earth as it encourages museum-goers to explore the latest research about these marine mammals as well as the central role they have played for thousands of years in human cultures. Through a variety of interactive exhibits, kids (and their grownups, who will find themselves just as fascinated!) experience a re-created dive to the depths of the sea with a sperm whale on the hunt for a giant squid, crawl through a life-size replica of the heart of the blue whale ? the largest living animal on the planet ? listen to whale croons, and meet whale riders, scientists, and former whaling families. At the heart of its mission, the exhibition explores the close connections humans and whales have shared for centuries.
Address: 200 Central Park West Upper West Side, NY 10036
