Pirates! Fact and Fiction

17 June – 9 September

Ahoy me hearties! Join St Barbe Museum + Art Gallery for a swashbuckling exhibition this summer to learn about pirates from across the globe.

This exciting family-friendly exhibition takes you on a journey through pirate history, film and literature. From the Cilician pirates of the Roman Mediterranean to the Golden Age pirates of the Caribbean. Meet Vikings, Barbary corsairs, and Chinese pirates on the way and discover facts about their Ships and tactics.

There is lots to see and do… spectacular costumes from Black Sails, Peter Pan and Spartacus and fun interactives, children’s trail and activity sheets for all ages. Try on our fabulous costumes – adults included!

We are open Monday to Saturday 10am to 4pm – plus Summer Sundays from 22 July to 3 September.
