Pirate Weekend!

Feb 17, 2018 @ 11:00 am  —  Feb 18, 2018 @ 3:30pm

Ahoy, Buccaneers! It’s Pirate Weekend, when we celebrate all things pirate! Come learn about pirate legends, explore the myths and facts of piracy, and discover why these scoundrels have played such an important role in our cultural marine history.

Kids can build their own pirate ship from a wooden kit for just $5, while supplies last. Wear you best pirate garb, stop by our activity tables, and join the fun!

Scheduled pirate-related staff-led programs include:

Saturday @ 11am – Pirates: Fact vs. Fiction. Hear tales of famous pirate legends and discover what stories you may have heard are just myths.

Saturday @ 1:30pm – Load your boat: sink or float? Design your own vessel and see how much treasure it can hold before it sinks!

Saturday @ 3:30pm – Pirates of New England. Did you know there were a dozen or more pirates that sailed in New England? Some were even captured here!

Sunday @ 11am – Load your boat: sink or float? Design your own vessel and see how much treasure it can hold before it sinks!
