Based on the bestselling Horrible Histories series and developed in association with Scholastic UK.

Take command of a pirate ship, design your own pirate flag, try out different weapons from cutlasses to cannons, find your fate on the 'wheel of misfortune', discover the best loot to steal and splat rats in the Quayside Tavern.

Along the way, discover why pirate women were just as wicked as the men and learn to talk like a pirate! Learn about the ships they sailed on, the punishments they suffered and the rules they lived by.

Author Terry Deary and illustrator Martin Brown’s unique approach to storytelling comes to life in this blockbuster family exhibition.
