Horrible Histories - Pirates: The Exhibition

03 52 724 701

19 Nov 2016 - 17 Apr 2017

Do you have what it takes to be a pirate? This blockbuster family exhibition will sure to be a hit.

Interactive and hands on, it is based on the bestselling Horrible Histories series. The exhibition comprises a harbour bought to life, with quayside pirate shops and a tavern, plus four vessels in the bay, with a distant desert island.

Learn about the ships they sailed on, the punishments they suffered and the rules they lived by.

Full of lively illustrations, foul facts and gruesome games, the exhibition is a rollicking ride back in time to the days when putrid pirates ruled the water and gave merchant sailors jelly-legs.

The National Wool Museum is the first venue to host this travelling exhibition outside of its Sydney home, the National Maritime Museum of Australia.
