The V&A Museum of Childhood is putting on an exhibition exploring the swashbuckling world of fictional pirates.

Developed with young children in mind, the exhibition will feature an immersive and playful set design that will take your little ones into an imaginary world of adventure and exploration, starting off in a moody coastal inn and ending up on a tropical island in search of treasure!

The centrepiece of the exhibition is a large pirate ship that will inspire learning through active play.

The exhibits include everything from toys and games to books, pictures and comics, spanning over 300 years-worth of popular culture from Victorian Britain to the present day. They'll even get to see some real pirate coins -- bringing them into contact with real pirates in the real world.
