The Museum of the Whale of Madeira (MBM) contemplates, as soon as it is born, a double facet, apparently contradictory, that reconciles whaling and conservation. Its creation was proposed to the Municipal Council of Machico in 1989 by Mr. Eleutério Reis, manager of EBAM (Empresa Baleeira da Madeira), which would become the first director of the institution, calling for the protection of cetaceans in the waters of the archipelago.

The Whale Museum was formally constituted on February 26, 1990 by resolution of the Machico City Council and is a permanent institution, at the service of society and its non-profit development.

The MBM is currently a department of the Municipality of Machico, located in Vila do Caniçal, which tells the whole story of whaling, covers the diversity of cetaceans, and dedicates itself to scientific projects and education.
