Right Whale #2030

Right whale #2030 hangs 15 feet above the heads of our visitors! After three years and countless staff and volunteer hours, the whale skeleton was assembled and hung in the atrium of the Museum. Theatrical riggers I. Weiss took just two and a half days to move the completed skeleton into the building and suspend it permanently in its new home.  It was a long journey from sea to land and it really is a "Whale of a Tale!"
