Expedition Whydah Pirate Museum
Plan to visit Provincetown’s Expedition Whydah Pirate Museum!
In 1984, famous explorer Barry Clifford and his team discovered the legendary wreck of the Whydah Galley, which sank in a northeaster off nearby Wellfleet in 1717. The Whydah Pirate Museum is our base of operations.
Here you will learn the fate of Sam Bellamy and his pirate crew, have a glimpse into the little-known golden age of piracy, view authentic weaponry, tools, canons, coins and other artifacts, all excavated from the wreck.
Museum Admission: $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and kids. Kids 5 and under, free. Group rates available.
