Overview

Pirates Up Late!

Explore the Museum after hours and discover a pirate playground for people 18+.

This is only the second time the Museum has opened late just for adults (no kids!).

With a drink in hand, experience live music, special talks and demonstrations, plus you’ll get to explore our latest travelling exhibition, Horrible Histories – Pirates: The Exhibition without the kids hogging all the fun.

Take command of a pirate ship, design and project your own pirate flag, get the low down on different weapons from cutlasses to cannons, find your fate on the wheel of misfortune, discover the best loot to steal and splat rats in the quayside tavern. Pick up a copy of the Horrible Histories – Pirates trail and find all six of the paper presses to perfect your pirate picture.
 
Along the way, discover why pirate women were just as wicked as the men and learn to talk the patter of a pirate. Learn about the ships they sailed on, the punishments they suffered and the rules they lived by.

PLUS
• Grab a wine or beer and…
• Bust some pirate myths with Dr Maddy Fowler, Senior Curator Maritime Archaeology
• Learn about the development of super oysters to produce perfect pearls
