New Bedford Whaling Museum Resurrects America’s Longest Painting

The New Bedford Whaling Museum’s “Grand Panorama of a Whaling Voyage ‘Round the World” is the longest painting in America, as well as a rich tapestry of fascinating narratives that delight, inform and entertain. The Panorama recreates the experience of a whaling voyage, detailing the remarkable sights that only whalemen were privileged to see, and depicts the story of whaling and the cultural ties born of this global industry, now ingrained in the unique multi-cultural landscape of New England.
