The workshop presents a unique learning opportunity and is led by an experienced member of the education team in costume.

During the workshop students will learn that piracy is an ancient and mostly unromantic occupation. The Maritime Museum uses a model sailing ship and other replica objects to illustrate the various jobs and hazards of being a pirate. Students will learn about the different types of pirates, buccaneers, privateers and female pirates.

Please feel free to go along dressed in your own fearsome pirate costumes!
