OAK CREEK, WI -- (Marketwired) -- 04/08/13 -- Legendary tales of the "Prince of Pirates" come to life in an expansive educational display that has taken over the special exhibition halls of the Milwaukee Public Museum through May 27. For the benefit of landlubbers seeking the excitement of underwater discovery, a special hotel package is offered at nearby Milwaukee, WI hotel suites.
Everyone can test their sea legs with the "Real Pirates" weekend package at the stylish Fairfield Inn & Suites Milwaukee Airport Hotel that includes two adult admission tickets to the "Real Pirates" Exhibit where true-to-life experiences from the Golden Age of Piracy have been revived aboard the Whydah, one of the most successful pirate ships of the early 18th century. Renowned as one of the most technologically advanced vessels of her time the Whydah was captured by Sam Bellamy, a well-known pirate often referred to as the "Prince of Pirates," while on her maiden voyage and spent the remainder of her days leading pirate raids throughout Caribbean waters and up the Atlantic coastline. Sinking to her demise on April 26, 1717 in the midst of a perfect storm, the ship, her crew and the bounty from more than 50 captured ships lay on the ocean floor for more than 300 years.
The discovery of this phenomenal vessel in 1984 by an underwater exploration team led by Barry Clifford has uplifted these exciting treasures and "Real Pirates" brings to life the ship, the pirates and their bounty in the ultimate educational adventure. An exciting outing for anyone, rates for the "Real Pirates" hotel package start at just $149* and not only includes two adult tickets to the exhibit, but treats guests of this Milwaukee, WI lodging to a complimentary breakfast buffet and evening cocktail hour with beer on tap, wine and soda.
