Whaling Museum - Toensberg, Norway

Good morning,

This is a return visit to the Toensberg, Norway, Whaling Museum. 
Of course, we took pictures earlier times we were here, too, but our cameras weren't as good as the cameras we have now.
You can get an idea of size of these creatures by comparison with that handsome man who shows up in so many of my pictures.

Did you know there are "fingers" inside the fins of whales?

I took pictures of the signs which explain the exhibits much better than I could ever explain them.



 These animals are huge.  Back in the Viking and later times, they provided meat, fuel, and so much more for the people of Scandinavia.

 What a fascinating place!

 All the best,
Lois
