                                Pirates Arrrrr Coming!!

Pirates and pirate activity was not unknown to the Jersey Shore during the late 17th and early 18th Century. Join us at the Dr. Robinson Museum on June 11th & 12th as Bloody Historical presents: Pirates of the Northern Star. Bloody Historical is both a historical and theatrical entertainment group for children and adults. They realistically portray people from specific time periods while physically interacting with the public to entertain and to educate. The group will be portraying pirates from the 17th & 18th Century and giving us a glimpse into the life of a pirate. Pirate props and displays will be on hand as the pirates set up camp and spend the night. Walk through their encampment during the day or at night and hear pirate stories as you observe pirates mending sails, tying rope, cooking and firing a canon. There will be lots of action, laughs and education for the weekend. 

Hours for the weekend are Saturday from 11-5PM & 8-10PM and Sunday from 11-5PM. Free admission and on street parking is available.

The Dr. Robinson Museum is itself a “living” museum that was built in 1690 by Dr. William Robinson, who emigrated here from Scotland. The house has three floors which contain much of its original wood framing. Through research and dedication of volunteers the house is filled with reproductions to demonstrate what life was like so many years ago. Outside there are buildings to depict what many Colonial Americans would have used to support their family. The house is registered on the National and State registry of Historical Landmarks.
