"New England's Whaling History"

Spermaceti is a substance derived from whales that was once used to make candles. This converted 1846 candle factory is now home to a museum about Nantucket's whaling history - and it's an excursion that can not be missed. It features a tremendous collection of artifacts including the skeleton of a 46-foot sperm whale, the 16-foot (5-meter) glass prism from Sankaty Head Light, portraits of sea captains, a large scrimshaw collection, and so much more!
