This recently remodeled museum comprises five exhibition spaces with models, audiovisual displays and multilingual explanations concerning the gray whales that live and breed in the local waters. A soundtrack of whales in the wild adds to the atmosphere, as does the well-lit and airy gallery spaces. The museum's foundation promotes the study and conservation of whales.

There is also a section dedicated to local turtles covering the seven different species native to Mexico, plus a cafeteria and a gift shop.
