The Cold Spring Harbor Whaling Museum’s archival holdings of 6,000 artifacts document the whaling and general maritime history both of Cold Spring Harbor and Long Island. Highlights of the collection include New York State’s only fully-equipped 19th Century whaleboat with original gear and one of the most notable scrimshaw collections in the Northeast. Each year, over 12,000 school attendees explore the museum’s innovative education programs. For more information on the Cold Spring Harbor Whaling Museum visit http://www.cshwhalingmuseum.org/.

On Friday evening, Assemblyman Chad Lupinacci joined with friends and supporters to honor the 70th Anniversary of the Cold Spring Harbor WhalingMuseum. The museum works to explore the ever-changing relationship between humans and whales and the cultural, scientific and environmental significance of whaling on Long Island and the sea.

“Long Island’s connection to water was central to its development at its foundation and continues today,” said Lupinacci. “While whaling is no longer an acceptable practice, by exploring the history of the industry and the effects the practice had on our natural resources we can better understand our development as a community and as a nation, and our place in the world today. For 70 years the curators, benefactors and patrons of the Cold Spring Harbor Whaling Museum have used the immense collection of artifacts and archives to learn about the world around us.”
