The highlight of the exhibition is a skeleton of 30-meter-long fin whale. It is the second-longest mammal in the world after a blue whale. It was gifted by graduates of Kherson Maritime School. The whale was caught near the coast of Antarctica in the mid-20th century. The skeleton occupies almost the entire 2nd floor of the museum hall.
