Discovery Times Square – SHIPWRECK Pirates and Treasure- GIVEAWAY

Lily and I kicked off our summer vacation with an adventure!

A pirate adventure matey!! arrrrgh!

I worked with the fab Beth Feldman of Beyond PR to help organize a blogger/media promo event at Discovery Times Square in NYC to promote their latest exhibit. So I invited some of my fave NYC bloggers to come hangout with their kidlets for a fun afternoon of piracy on the high seas! {or in times square}

We headed over to Discovery Times Square to check out SHIPWRECK – Pirates & Treasure – an interactive, multi media exhibit with more than 500 artifacts from deep-sea ocean expeditions from all over the world.

Lily had a chance to hold REAL pirates gold that was found in a shipwreck off the coast of Key West.

You will also encounter some of the notorious pirates that terrorized the seas including Blackbeard, Captain Kidd, Barbary Corsairs, Privateers and Buccaneers.

This little Lilypie of mine has a thing for adventure and stories. And this pirate exhibit had it all. The exhibit is incredibly interactive with lots of things for the kids to do and touch and learn about.

One of Lily’s favorite parts was the Hurricane Simulator.

She was impressed with the pirate skeletons… and again this too sparked her creative story telling and I got to hear lots of pirate skeleton tales on the way back home.

Adventure awaits at Discover Times Square everyone!

One of the exhibit’s most coveted highlights is the wreck of the SS Republic, a Civil War-era side-wheel steamship which sank to the bottom of the ocean in 1865 due to a ferocious storm. The Republic, yielding over 51,000 silver and gold coins and 14,000 artifacts, was discovered by Odyssey Marine Exploration, Inc. 1,700 feet below the surface of the Atlantic in 2003 and now provides visitors with a detailed look at life in America in the late 19th century.
