Whales in Boston

New Zealand’s “Whales Tohora” exhibition continues its North American tour showing at the Museum of Science in Boston through September 14. The Cape Cod Times’ Molly Driscoll explains: “The exhibit focuses on whale behavior and the relationship the species has had with humans through the centuries, especially with the New Zealand Maori. Visitors can learn about the history of whaling,” marvel “at whale skeletons”, while “interactive exhibits” enable museum-goers “to feel like a whale, swimming, diving and all. You can sniff a sample of ambergris, a substance that forms in the intestines of whales; the scent is a weird combination of fishy and spicy.”
