Mystic Seaport has released a new short video called “The History of Whaling: In the Heart of Mystic Seaport,” which highlights the Seaport’s new exhibit “Voyaging in the Wake of the Whalers”. The exhibit sheds light on the country’s whaling history and our changing relationship with cetaceans over the past 200 years.
