Visit Birmingham’s Thinktank science museum this summer for a fantastic new “The Pirates! In an Adventure With Scientists” exhibition!  Opening May 23rd 2013!



The touring exhibition brings together a collection of exquisitely crafted sets and puppets from Aardman’s Academy Award-nominated film and gives visitors the chance to become part of the Pirate Captain’s crew!  From dressing up in pirate gear, to steering a galleon and playing a part in the movie using clever blue-screen technology, there are plenty of swashbuckling activities to take part in!


In celebration of Polly, the Pirate Captain’s dodo with a mistaken identity, visitors will also have the chance to see the renowned ‘Oxford Dodo’ - a reconstruction of the famously extinct bird created by the Oxford University Museum of Natural History!

The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists The Exhibition opens to the public at Thinktank on May 23rd and will run until September. Entry to the exhibition will be included in the Thinktank ticket price and a programme of accompanying events and activities will be made available nearer the date of the exhibition. For further information visit the Thinktank website

No! Someday I will swim over to the other continents and tour all the attractions that aren't over here! Well... I over exaggerated... maybe not swim... might take a plane. The Pirates! is still an amazing film though!
