Bayworld Whale Skeleton

Looking up at the impressive whale skeleton on display in the Marine Hall at the Port Elizabeth Museum at Bayworld.  The skeleton belongs to the last Southern Right Whale to be hunted in Algoa Bay.

  1. Firefly, you made my day! This skeleton is a huge (pardon the pun) part of my first museum memory from when I was a tiny pre-schooler. I was so pleased to see it still in its place suspended from the ceiling, when we visited in 2007!
