Whales: Giants of the Deep at the American Museum of Natural History

"Oh, man! admire and model thyself after the whale!" Ishmael's advice seems downright sensible after attending Whales: Giants of the Deep at the American Museum of Natural History. This engrossing exhibit reveals cetaceans in all their diverse glory, from the giant-nosed sperm whales to the singing humpbacks to the ginormous blues. If the skeletal cast from a beached whale doesn't wow you, climbing inside a model of a whale heart surely will. Bonus: no monomaniacal sea captains in sight.
