Pilot whale skull goes on display in Lynn

Following on from a recent sell-out talk on whales and whaling in King’s Lynn, Lynn Museum is displaying a pilot whale skull from its collection.

This is the first time that it has been on display. It offers visitors a chance to get up close and see the fascinating interior of the skull.

Pilot whales, like killer whales, belong to the dolphin family and are the most commonly beached of large marine mammals.

Lynn Museum tells the fascinating story of West Norfolk and is home to Seahenge, the unique 4,000 year old timber circle. The award winning museum is housed in a former Victorian Baptist Chapel in the heart of King’s Lynn.

Open 10am -5pm, Tuesday to Saturday. Admission is free until the end of March. Lynn Museum is located near the bus station King’s Lynn.
