Whale Museum

When you think of Hermanus, you automatically think of whales, so it’s no surprise that the town is home to its own whale museum as well.

The whale museum is situated in the heart of the town, and showcases almost everything there is to know about the Southern Right whales that visit Hermanus in the later winter months. Its a great place to take the kids, too!
