Pirate Takeover Weekend

Grab an eye patch, tricorn and bandanna and join us as we hoist the jolly roger and set sail on the briny with another fabulously fun Pirate Takeover!

There’ll be lots of swashbuckling fun at the Scottish Maritime Museum (Irvine) as young buccaneers weigh anchor for a two day Pirate Takeover.

The fun–filled day for children of all ages and their families is back by popular demand.

Running from 11am to 4pm, the Pirate Takeover will feature a special pirate treasure hunt trail, face painting, a bouncy pirate ship castle, fun games around the Museum and ‘make and take’ crafts. You can also meet our very own resident pirate who will show you the ropes and welcome you aboard.

Visitors are encouraged to dress up for the day.
