Visit the conservation lab for a free BTS tour—you'll be among the first to see (and touch!) artifacts from the infamous pirate Blackbeard's ship that's been hidden under water for nearly 300 years.

"The Queen Anne's Revenge Conservation Lab in Greenville, NC is open for FREE behind-the-scenes tours of the exciting work being done at our facility! We conserve, document, and investigate the artifacts recovered from the shipwreck identified as the pirate Blackbeard’s flagship, Queen Anne’s Revenge.

Be among the first eyes to see pieces of the ship and objects touched by pirates that have been hidden under the ocean for almost 300 years, and experience all that is involved in preserving these priceless artifacts! It is because of your interest and support that we are able to continue learning about and sharing this incredible piece of history with our state, our nation, and our world. Highlights include:

  • Enter our warehouse, which contains one of the largest collections of cannon excavated from a single wreck.
  • View pieces of a real pirate ship, including a 12-foot anchor and parts of the hull structure itself.
  • Explore how we reveal mysteries of the sea through x-ray technology.
  • Preview fully-conserved artifacts before they reach the museum.

Tours of our working lab are provided by the conservators, so please be aware that tour schedules may be limited as we work to preserve this significant shipwreck! Choose from our tour options below for more information and to register." — Queen Anne's Revenge Project
