Blackbeard Museum Exhibits and More

The ultimate goal of the Queen Anne's Revenge project is to bring artifacts from the ocean floor to museum door to share this important story of North Carolina's history.

The N.C. Maritime Museum in Beaufort, which is the official repository for artifacts from the Queen Anne's Revenge, offers a free exhibit where you can see many of the artifacts our project has conserved. The exhibit incorporates interactive displays, quizzes and props to help tell the story of Blackbeard and offer a look into what the future holds for the shipwreck site. 

Artifacts from the wreck can also be seen at the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum in Hatteras, the N.C. Museum of History in Raleigh and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., while Historic Bath in Bath offers visitors the chance to walk some of the same paths that Blackbeard would have walked.
