“Great information”

Museo de las Ballenas
Ranked #6 of 14 things to do in Salinas
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 June 2015

The place is far too small to show everything they could show but the enthousiasm of Ben Haase makes you become interested even if you started without. Good exhibition and lots of facts to be learned.

Not your typical museum. No fancy displays. Just a passionate naturalist with enough bones and data and a willingness to share his stories and enthusiasm and to teach you more about whales than you ever thought possible. It's hands on..please touch experiencial visit. Coming originally from the Netherlands, Ben speaks excellent English.

The guide knows what he is talking about. The place is small, but volumes of information. A real treasure in a small package. We eight visitors loved it!

Ben's knowledge of Cetaceans and birds made the tour of his small fascinating museum and the birds that migrate to the salt ponds very interesting. It's only open when he's home but well worth checking back if you miss him the first time.

I have not been there because I can not find it. Went on their web site, looked at the map and still cannot find it. My condo is not supposed to be far at all but I have not been able to find it. Will let you know.
