The Expedition Whydah Sea Lab and Learning Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts, opened in July of 1996 and was the first permanent location dedicated to the display of artifacts recovered from the Whydah wreck site. Much like its newer counterpart in Yarmouth, the original museum is dedicated to the Whydah, her crew, and her discovery.
For over two decades, the Provincetown facility has provided the public with a unique glimpse into the history of Golden Age of Piracy and the science of underwater archaeology. Situated at the end of MacMillian wharf, the Provincetown location also serves as the headquarters of Expedition Whydah’s ongoing diving operations and is home to the Vast Explorer research vessel.
Whether you’re looking to explore the fascinating story of Whydah, pick up some pirate regalia in the gift shop, or simply to top off a scenic stroll through the heart of Provincetown’s commercial district, the Expedition Whydah Learning Center is worth a visit!
