The annual Moby Dick Marathon isn’t the only reason to visit the New Bedford Whaling Museum, one of the more unique museums around. From the giant blue whale skeleton to the Lagoda, the world’s largest ship model, this place is pure New England. And, if you were lucky on Jan. 3-4, you caught part of the 11th annual Moby Dick Marathon in about the most appropriate setting possible.

Read an article on the Melville Marathon and more
on the museum by Marlissa Briggett.
