The Blue Whale Exhibition revealed!

Today is a great day for Húsavík. The blue whale project which has been in a long process ever since a blue whale drifted to the beach in Skagi in 2010 finally came to an end today when the Whale Museum opened after 6 months of constructions. Húsavík is now one of only ten places in the world that have a skeleton of the largest animal in the world. Many people, local- and tourists gathered today to the museum to see the outcome of this BIG project. The exhibition is breathtaking as you can see in the following pictures.
