Situated among the Arizona Science Center’s hundreds of interactive displays, National Geographic’s Real Pirates immerses visitors in the world of the Whydah, an 18th-century slave ship that was commandeered and transformed into a pirate ship by Sam Bellamy and ultimately met its fate at the bottom of the ocean deep. The exhibit highlights 200 Whydah artifacts excavated by underwater explorer Barry Clifford, including gold and jewels plundered from more than 54 ships as well as the Whydah’s anchor, bell, and faulty GPS system. Scallywags can roam a large-scale replica of the ship, observing the day-to-day activities that would have taken place on its hull, and learn about the slave trade and the Golden Age of Piracy through engaging and informative videos. A corner of the exhibit also details the Whydah’s swashbucklers, including an eight-year-old boy named Young John King who demanded to join Sam Bellamy and his crew, circumventing bedtime forever. In addition to National Geographic, this exhibition is sponsored by The Arizona Republic and Cox Media Group.
