A Pirate's Life for Me

A Pirate's Life For Me 

This fun and interactive exhibition gets kids dressing up and really learning through play. As you hunt for treasure there are lots of short films to watch and characters to discover as well as a giant pirate ship on which you can become a pirate for a day or, if you’re less fortunate, walk the plank! Small children just don’t read signs next to boxes of artefacts but in this fab show families and tiny tots can learn and explore together and children will not get bored.

Children’s minds are guided through how pirate tales are developed as they walk from the salty seaside tavern to the tropical treasure island and learn about pirates in popular culture (dressed as Captain Pugwash).

With over 80 objects spanning Victorian Britain to the present day, the exhibition explores how pirates have become such powerful cultural icons. Highlights include an illustration of Captain Hook for the first ever theatre production of Peter Pan in 1904, a child’s fancy dress costume from the 1920s, the first ever painting of Captain Pugwash and seventeenth century Spanish doubloons.

And it's FREE!

Plus specially conceived Annabel Karmel menu in the cafe.
