A Brand New Space at the New Bedford Whaling Museum The Harbor View Gallery

After eighteen months of renovations and improvements we are thrilled to finally showcase the beautiful views of the New Bedford waterfront from the Harbor View Gallery, the brand-new event space located in the Wattles Jacobs Educational Center of the New Bedford Whaling Museum.

A stunning outdoor observation deck connects to the Gallery, a space with windows stretched from top to bottom, stunning hardwood floors and an exposed ceiling, making this space an open canvas to create the event of your dreams. Perfect for rehearsal dinners, weddings, formal plated dinners, cocktail parties, or conferences the Harbor View Gallery can fit up to 200 people seated or up to 300 people for a cocktail party.


Available as of October 1st the Gallery has already played host to three beautiful weddings and is booking quickly for the 2015 holiday season and for 2016. For more information on booking this or any of the other beautiful spaces see our venue profile here.

Before you book, join us for the 2015 Taste and Tour Open House. This free event, hosted in partnership with the Whaling Museum will take place on Sunday, November 1st from 12-4 PM. Some of our preferred vendors will be showing of their fabulous work throughout the museum to show you just a few ways the Museum is the perfect location to host your wedding or event.
