Arrr, it be pirates in the Salem area ready to have a pirate family fun day out!
Kids can be immersed in the little known history of the New England pirates and sea-robbers at the New England Pirate Museum!
Kids can hear all about those swashbuckling pirates of Blackbeard and Captains Kidd, who actually roamed the New England coast plundering the merchant ships who tried to head to shore.
It's a great way for them to learn about history whilst having fun...after all, it's pirates!
The New England Pirate Museum offers historically accurate and entertaining live walking tours, along with a fun guide who always encourage the kids to participate and answer questions!
The tour will begin in their artifacts room that is filled with REAL pirate treasures...imagine the stories they hold!
Then, you can stroll through a colonial seaport, then board a pirate ship, AND explore an 80 foot caves...sounds pretty scary! (Especially when you encounter those 17th century pirates face to face!)
Did you know that the area off Boston was called the Gold Coast? That's exactly why pirates like Blackbeard loved the area! The gold was from Central American and Europe, and many of the pirates were actually from New England. Here's a fun fact - many of the treasures ended up being buried off the coast, and most of it is still there!
Kids can mingle with the swashbucklers of old, and become part of their world.
The 20 to 30 minute walking tour will really show you who the real rascals of 1692 Salem were (and they weren't the witches!)
Let's go find some treasure!
