I heart the blue whale heart

Move over big squid – there’s competition at Te Papa for the most popular exhibit these holidays ! 

You love the blue whale heart in NatureSpace, including crawling into it, stuffing things inside it (like big toy penguins) and having your picture taken with it. 

The model was a highlight of the Whales | Tohorā exhibition. It was so popular we made two of them! The other heart model is now on tour with the exhibition, which closed at the National Geographic Museum in Washington DC on 18 Jan 2009 and will open on 28 February at Exploration Place, in Kansas.

The blue whale heart is a favourite Te Papa photo spot and it’s great to see your pics up on Flickr.

If you’ve got photos of you and your mates with the blue whale heart we’d love to see them!
