• New Aardman Pirates! Exhibition Opening at Thinktank in May!

    Visit Birmingham’s Thinktank science museum this summer for a fantastic new “The Pirates! In an Adventure With Scientists” exhibition!


    The touring exhibition brings together a collection of exquisitely crafted sets and puppets from Aardman’s Academy Award-nominated film and gives visitors the chance to become part of the Pirate Captain’s crew! From dressing up in pirate gear to steering a galleon and playing a part in the movie using clever blue-screen technology, there are plenty of swashbuckling activities to take part in!

    In celebration of Polly, the Pirate Captain’s dodo with a mistaken identity, visitors will also have the chance to see the renowned ‘Oxford Dodo’ – a reconstruction of the famously extinct bird created by the Oxford University Museum of Natural History!

    The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists The Exhibition opens to the public at Thinktank on May 23rd and will run until September. Entry to the exhibition will be included in the Thinktank ticket price and a programme of accompanying events and activities will be made available nearer the date of the exhibition.
