Whales in progress

Guess what? Húsavík and London have got something in common.

They are about 2.000km far away from each other. London can easily be considered the capital of Europe, its population is 5.000 times bigger than Húsavík‘s and the number of pubs is 3.500 greater. But in our dear Húsavík one can see at least 40 midnight suns a year and several tens of northern lights. Anyhow, despite they seem to be two totally different worlds, they definitely have something in common. At least in these months.

The Húsavík Whale Museum is working since September on the display of a Blue Whale skeleton. The Natural History Museum of London is actually doing the same. Isn‘t that cool?

From summer 2017 the Blue Whale will take the place of the Diplodocus in the astonishing Hintze Hall of the Natural History Museum. The new skeleton display in the Whale Museum, instead, is going to be open to the public already in spring 2016, and it is going to be very special. Don‘t miss either of them!

PS: if you want to visit only one or the other, pick the best one. Which is to say the exhibit of the Húsavík Whale Museum of course 😉
