THE LIFE OF THE BLUE WHALE is an interactive museum experience featuring the skeleton of a huge whale.
Produced by the Natural History Museum in London, the website explores the history of whales, whaling, and the museum’s exhibits. The website is divided into three sections. The Ocean examines the era of whaling and the science of whales. The Hintze Hall section explores the huge whale skeleton on exhibit at the museum. Finally, the Collection area examines the history of the museum and the whale skeleton.
Librarians will find this interactive website to be an interesting way to explore whales, whaling, and history through the lens of a museum setting.
