Meet Finny

Dive in deeper with Finny, the Museum’s iconic artifact the 1905 finback whale skeleton that hangs above the first floor Galleria. This new experience will give visitors a chance to learn about and virtually interact with Finny.

At the Meet Finny kiosk, visitors will come face to face with Finny in the Finny Virtual Reality experience. An HTC Vive headset and hand controls will be available to put on and spend a few minutes interacting with Finny in whales’ natural environment.

Visitors will see Finny swimming around as you stand on the ocean floor, and learn about whale anatomy through the layers of its body. As visitors look through the headset, small targets will be seen on the whale, that allow users to click and learn more about fin whales. Learn about Finny’s blubber layer, internal organs and skeleton!
