Finally Friday: Pirates of the Caribean: The Curse of the Black Pearl


Ahoy mateys! Come celebrate the 300th anniversary of one of the most infamous pirates to sail the waters of North Carolina — Blackbeard. He was the captain of the Queen Anne’s Revenge, but lost the ship (some say on purpose) when it ran aground at Beaufort Inlet.

It’s hard to be a pirate, especially if you don’t have a ship! See the first adventure of Captain Jack Sparrow as he tries to reclaim his precious ship, the Black Pearl. But be careful — sometimes things are not as they seem, and you could be trapped in a curse for all eternity!

So grab your hat, your sword, and your eye patch and come aboard to see the June installment of Finally Friday: Pirates of the Caribean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Plus, learn everything you ever wanted to know about the science behind sea monsters, mythical creatures, pirates, treasure maps, ship navigation and much more. We’ll host an expert to help us separate the facts from the flotsam following the screening.

Loose change will be performing live at the museum from 5:30-7pm, and a sword fighting demonstration will begin at 6:40pm.
