Larsen Room
Larsen Room

C A Larsen was the Norwegian founder of Grytviken, and a pioneer of whaling in the Southern Ocean. Named after him, this room has objects and archives relating to the early history of sealing and whaling on South Georgia.

Among the many items in this room are a piano from the manager's villa, the grave marker of a 19th century sealer and a whale earbone painted to look like a human face.
