    That's four museums, Frank.
    The New Bedford Whaling Museum is in the city: on Johnnycake Hill, right
    across from the Seaman's Bethel that Melville wrote about.
    The Kendall Whaling Museum is in Sharon, Massachusetts (not far south of
    Boston). Odd location for a maritime museum but that's where it is.
    Both well worth a visit, as (of course) is Mystic Seaport. To my regret,
    I haven't yet made it to Nantucket so I know nothing of the museum there.
