Description:

Located in the heart of downtown Nantucket, the Whaling Museum offers guests the perfect mix of modern design combined with history and tradition. The museums’ climate-controlled space features an unforgettable 46-foot sperm whale skeleton, elegant art, and priceless artifacts.

 

Flowing from the museum’s main hall is the Hadwen & Barney Oil and Candle Factory, a soaring 1847 two-level exposed brick space with original wooden ceiling beams. Atop the Whaling Museum sits Tucker's Roofwalk which offers unparalleled panoramic views of Nantucket Harbor. The Whaling Museum’s outdoor deck is the largest rooftop party space in downtown Nantucket and overlooks the landmark historic district, with sight lines to the sea.

 

Together, they form an extraordinary venue to host a wedding ceremony, reception, cocktail party, private sunset dinner event or corporate retreat.
