Blackbeard returns to the North Carolina Maritime Museum with an expanded exhibit.

The 2018 renovation will expand the current footprint of the exhibit an additional 850 square feet. Along with the footprint expansion and addition of artifacts the Exhibits Department will be adding to and updating the narrative included in the exhibit regarding Blackbeard, Queen Anne’s Revenge and the world they existed in. This update will include research done by both the Museum’s staff and outside historians since the partial update in 2015 and additional information about the world during the 1700s.   

The expanded exhibit will include many of the same categories as the original exhibit, but with additional interpretation, artifacts, and utilize technology to enhance the visitors’ experiences.
