best whale of a return since carvel......... started making those fudgie cakes again (2008)

94-FOOT-LONG FIBERGLASS BLUE WHALE

After $25 million and a year and a half of construction, the old Hall of Ocean Life at the American Museum of Natural History has finally reopened, and with it a refurbished 94-FOOT-LONG FIBERGLASS BLUE WHALE. It's even better than the dusty dioramas of naked Neanderthals, and while the make-over's made the whale a little too sleek for its own good, you still half expect to find Phoebe Caulfield lurking in its shadows.
