The Whale ~ Once hunted, now there are Heroic efforts to protect them. The Sag Harbor Whaling & Historical Museum honors the past and embraces the future. A "Whale of a Show" celebrates the richness of our culture and good fortunes, from a lucrative Whaling Era to an economic re-birth in 1881 with the Fahys Watchcase Factory. Today, our unique Sag Harbor is home to seafarers, fishermen, artists, writers, actors, environmentalists, teachers and families all sharing a common love for the Water. We are surrounded by it, moved and inspired by it!

Thank all our Artists and Friends of The Sag Harbor Whaling & Historical Museum.
