The Whydah Pirate Museum “Won’t it be kind of cheesy?” said our New York guest when we suggested an outing to the Whydah Pirate Museum. Nope. This pirate museum is the real deal, home to artifacts discovered by divers at a shipwreck site off the coast of Wellfleet. The Whydah was wrecked in a nor’easter in 1717, with a cargo of treasure from 50 plundered ships, commanded by pirate Sam Bellamy. Underwater explorer Barry Clifford discovered the shipwreck in 1984.
