Discovery Times Square in New York City is more than a museum, it is a large-scale exhibition center with limited-run, educational and unique exhibits. This past week My Strange Family got to experience one of the current exhibits, Odyssey’s Shipwreck! Pirates & Treasure.

Shipwreck! offers visitiors a unique look into the depths of the ocean through a mix of actual historical artifacts and hands-on, interactive computer games and exhibits. The exhibit is ideal for all ages, but would be most appealing to treasure seekers, history buffs, future pirates, or lovers of the sea. The exhibit will be at Discovery Times Square through the end of the 2013 year.
