Baylor University’s Mayborn Museum has unveiled a new exhibition titled “Shipwreck! Pirates and Treasure.” The exhibition gives visitors a look at more than 2,000 years of nautical history, including one of America’s most famous shipwrecks — the Civil War-era SS Republic.
Guests can experience what it is like to excavate treasure from the ocean floor with an operable model of Odyssey’s Remotely Operated Vehicle ZEUS’s robotic arm. They can experience 75-mph winds in the Hurricane Simulator, learn how to identify pirate vessels using spyglasses and create a “pirate” in an interactive game.
The exhibition runs through September 16.
