Whaling Museum will reopen February 12

NANTUCKET, MA – The Nantucket Historical Association (NHA) will reopen the Whaling Museum on Friday, February 12, with free admission for the year-round community.

Robust sanitizing measures to make the indoor experience safe will continue.  The community can help by reserving a timed slot online.

The Festival of Trees remains on display through the President’s Day holiday weekend for visitors to enjoy the festive winter wonderland.

In partnership with the Nantucket Atheneum, a family-friendly scavenger hunt will launch on reopening weekend in celebration of its important donation to the NHA collection. Families can search for many of the historic artifacts, natural-history specimens, and ethnographic objects from around the world on display during their visit to the Whaling Museum.

The museum will be open for the entirety of the holiday weekend (Friday, February 12–Monday, February 15), 10am–4pm. The museum will then remain open Monday–Saturday (closed Sundays), 10am–4pm throughout the winter season.
