The exhibit is fun, hands-on and interactive, with a range of different activities from discovering treasure to firing cannons – there is something that will appeal to children of all ages!

As you arrive be sure to grab an activity sheet, complete the checklist and find the six paper presses to complete your Pirate picture – I found this a great way to encourage my 7 year old to explore the whole exhibit.

The younger kids will love the searching the island for missing treasure, helping to fix the giant magnetic Pirate ship, climbing below deck to watch a short film or captaining their own Pirate ship.

You’ll struggle to pull the older children away from the cannons! As well as being a lot of fun, it was great to watch children sharing, working together and making new friends while trying to defeat the other Pirate ship.

Miss 7 also loved the computer-based activities, she enjoyed taking a selfie then turning herself into a Pirate – you can email the image to yourself once you are finished. She also got creative designing her very own Pirate flag.

In addition to all the fun activities, there are lots of Pirate facts to learn. You can find answers to different questions by peering into the eyes of skulls located around the room. Discover facts about real Pirates and learn about the ships they sailed on. Kids can also get hands-on with some Pirate weapons.
