Whalers Museum

There is no Whalers Museum currently. It will be back in January 2019. You can also get your parking validated at any store with purchase to save on parking. Otherwise it's $3 for 30 minutes.

It costs $3 to park for 30 minutes in Whalers Village, so to get a little more bang out of your buck, have your parking ticket validated at the museum. Admission for the museum is $3, which you'd be spending to park anyway. We were happy to pay the museum instead of the parking garage, and the added bonus was two additional hours of parking, which allowed us to wander around the shops a little longer!
