Real Pirates Salem – Museum Experience

Voyage through pirate history with a museum over 300 years in the making! Real Pirates Salem features real artifacts and treasure from the shipwrecked Whydah Gally. From lore to legendary find, see and touch the world’s only authenticated pirate treasure ever discovered – including coins, cannons, and weapons – recovered from the ocean floor by underwater explorer Barry Clifford. Experience includes:

  • Two free photo booth memory moments, so that you can download and take your journey home with you.
  • Interactive stations to test your pirate abilities and a spot to touch real silver pieces of eight discovered at the Whydah wreck site.
  • Exploration of the Discovery Lab to learn about the archaeological preservation process of centuries-old artifacts pulled from the depths.
