BEST WHOPPER OF A TALE
New Bedford Whaling Museum, New Bedford
Before the discovery of petroleum, New Bedford once ruled the seas as the world’s top whaling port. Like its quarry, the whaling enterprise seems larger than life. This museum cuts the story down to size with telling details as modest as the scrimshaw pie crimper a whaler might have carved for his mother on his multiyear absence from home. 18 Johnny Cake Hill. 508-997-0046; whalingmuseum.org
