There’s A Pirate Museum In Massachusetts And It Looks As Amazing As It Sounds

If you’ve ever wanted to step onto a real pirate ship, a visit to the Whydah Pirate Museum is your chance.

This museum is centered around the infamous Whydah, a pirate vessel that sank off the coast of Wellfleet in 1717. Visitors are able to explore a full-scale replica of the ship and immerse themselves in the world of pirates.
