Special Events on Saturday, September 15
It was a dark, stormy night – the kind of night a pirate loves. Buccaneers from all over the seven seas were en route, descending on the great pirate feast. Suddenly, a bolt of lightning, a storm like no other and each and every last pirate was marooned on Science Island where they still remain to this day.
Now there might not be gold under the X mates, but on these days, the treasure is far better… a great time for the little buccaneers and their parents too! So grab your boots, your hat, waistcoats and trousers and join us on the fun!
The big celebration will be on Saturday, September 15. There will be black powder demonstrations at the top of every hour. Plus musical sea shanties, Pirate tales, and specials giveaways and prizes thanks to Disney, Pirate’s Cove Adventure Golf, Captain Memo’s Pirate Cruise and Pirates Dinner Adventure.
Thank you to all the crews who make this event possible: Arrr Ink., Brothers of the Coast, Costumers for a Cause and Searle’s Buccaneers.

Arrrr mateys! Have you ever wanted to meet a pirate? Well, here’s your chance! This Thursday through Sunday, the Orlando Science Center will be celebrating Pirate Week.
Come dressed up in your best pirate outfit and get ready to sail the seas. On Thursday, Friday and Sunday there will be many activities from searching for real treasure to making your own eye patch.
On Saturday, pirate impersonators will be joining us to talk about the exciting life of a pirate. They will cover the history of a pirate’s life, from what they did, to what they ate, to what they wore. There will also be black powder demonstrations, knot tying lessons, performances and more!
During the event, giveaways will also be awarded. Get the chance to win tickets to the Pirates Dinner Adventure show, Pirate’s Cove Mini Golf and much more.
Most of the events will take place in Kids Town, but there will many pirate “opp-arrr-tunities” throughout the entire museum.
