Pirate ship comes ashore in Denver

Barry Clifford’s lifelong passion for exploring led him all over the country from his college experience at Western State College to the discovery of the first and only authenticated pirate ship.

The fruits of his labor and passion are now on display at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science in the newly-opened exhibit, “Real Pirates: The Untold Story of the Whydah from Slave Ship to Pirate Ship.”
