This summer, ‘Real Pirates’ visits Kansas City’s Union Station! The exhibition, Real Pirates: The Untold Story of the Whydah, from Slave Ship to Pirate Ship, reveals the story of a 1715 ship that wrecked off the coast of Cape Cod with the loot of over 50 other ships on board, providing an extraordinary time capsule. The films were produced, written and directed by Professor Maggie Burnette Stogner, along with other multimedia and interactive material. The Real Pirates exhibit can also be seen at the National Geographic Museum in Washington D.C. Both exhibits offer an extraordinary experience with artifacts and immersive media that recreate life aboard the ship.
‘Real Pirates’ will be on view at Kansas City’s Union Station from June 22, 2013 – January 5, 2014.
