Whales are fascinating! They're also, oftentimes, absolutely gigantic-- which makes storing them in a museum collection quite challenging. We had the chance to visit the Smithsonian's "Whale Warehouse" to chat with Curator of Marine Mammals Dr. Michael McGowen, and learn more about the incredible specimens housed in this unique space.
