The museum has delved deep into its collection and bought to the surface a range of fun, quirky and utilitarian whale-related artefacts. On display are fascinating curiosities such as a glove stretcher, a pie crimper and dolls made from whalebone. Tools, games and everyday items such as a toothbrush show the widespread use of whale products in the past.
