Fun, laughter and a treasure hunt took place at the Havering Museum over the Easter holidays.
The museum recruited Pirate Pete to teach pirate-wannabes how to be the perfect pirate.
The children made their very own pirate hats and then using clues from a treasure map searched high and low through the museum galleries for the treasure.
When the children struck gold they were each rewarded with an Easter Egg as a share of the bootie. The event proved to be educational as well as fun for all the family.
Ellen Owen, director of the museum, said: “It was great to see the children having fun learning about pirates but they also learnt about smugglers and highwaymen in the Smugglers, Pirates and Highwaymen events.”
