Horrible Histories - Pirates: The Exhibition

Do you have what it takes to be a pirate?

 

Get hands-on with pirate history at this Australian National Maritime Museum travelling exhibition based on the bestselling Horrible Histories series and developed in association with Scholastic UK.

 

Take command of a pirate ship, design and project your own pirate flag, try out 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.

 

Along the way, discover why the 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.

 

The Museum of Tropical Queensland is the first venue in Queensland and only the third in Australia to host this travelling exhibition.
