Real Pirates of Salem and Salem Kids Tour Family Combo Ticket

Immerse yourself in the stories of Real Pirates! The family-friendly pirate experience features the true tale of “Black Sam” Bellamy – the richest and one of the youngest pirates of all time – and Maria Hallett, the love of his life and so-called “Witch of Wellfleet.”  You’ll also get to see real pirate treasure recovered from the wreck of the pirate ship Whydah.

On your Salem Kids Tour, you’ll take a walk through time as we explore the streets of Salem hearing tales from history with a touch of mystery.  You’ll see the actual sites where suspicions of witchcraft unfolded, and you’ll hear about an amazing escape, a “moving” graveyard, and more.  The walking tour begins at the Real Pirates of Salem at 285 Derby Street at 11:25am.  The tour is one hour long, and ends at the Witchcraft Trials Memorial, which is just a five-minute walk from the Real Pirates.

Your ticket for the Real Pirates Museum is open-ended; you can visit anytime during operating hours on your chosen day. Visit the museum before or after your walking tour.
