The Wattles Jacobs Education Center
Save these dates for Grand Opening Celebrations
September 26 and 27
The new Wattles Jacobs Education Center will allow the Whaling Museum to meet its dramatically expanding programming needs. The Whaling Museum is committed to fostering a community of lifelong learning through both formal and informal educational programs, which provide meaningful experiences for students, educators, scholars and enthusiasts. Each year, more than 12,000 students and teachers visit the Whaling Museum. The center will provide 3,000 square feet of new classroom space, more than quadrupling the Whaling Museum’s existing classroom space. The center will enhance the Whaling Museum’s ability to actively engage in efforts to improve educational attainment by expanding its meaningful, out-of-the-classroom experience for students and educators.
Wattles Jacobs Education Center planning and construction continues on pace. Expected occupancy is fall 2015.
