Arrr me harties, want to experience something truly unique? Did you know that the Whydah Pirate Museum is the world's ONLY place where you can see authenticated pirate treasure. How cool is that!
Whydah Pirate Museum is Cape Cod's newest interactive science museum that features real pirates and real treasures! It's a must-see attraction for all ages where you will touch, see and interact with the world's only authenticated pirate treasure, discovered in 1984 off the coast of Wellfleet.
The museum is popular with kids, and when you visit you'll see why!
Kids can climb aboard a Whydah ship replica, and really imagine themselves as real swashbuckling pirates! They can also touch and see silver and gold pirate coins that date back 300 years. Pretty cool!
And then, there are the pirate artifacts! Kids can see a host of artifacts up close, including pirate pistols, and sword hilts. It's also a great learning experience for them too, as they find out why Captain Samuel Bellamy entered the violent nor'easter on April 26, 1717, off the coast of Cape Cod that sent his pirates ship into a watery grave!
They can also learn about the slave trade and the pirate's lives, see early maps of the Atlantic and the Caribbean, and imagery of an 18th century world!
Arrrrr me tiny swashbucklers, are ye ready for a pirate day out in Cape Cod with REAL pirate artifacts! Let's set sail!
