Whale Hall: whales from the North Sea
The most common reaction in the Whale Hall is “WOW!”. The enormous skeletons, the blue color, the special lighting, it all adds up to this spectacular exhibit. Don’t miss this experience when visiting Ecomare! In the Whale Hall, you literally walk among the whale skeletons; these are all whales and dolphins, which stranded near Texel. You feel very small when standing next to the giant skull of a 15-meter long sperm whale. In a special display case, you find one of the smaller showpieces of the exhibit: a piece of ambergris, a material that only forms a few sperm whales and formerly called ‘floating gold’. Discover the fascinating story behind this find in the exhibit.
