Happy Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Yarr, it be Talk Like a Pirate Day, so our crew has hoisted the main sail and is off pillagin’. That’ll be why we’re closed today. The fact it’s Monday and the museum’s always closed on Mondays’s got naught to do with it.

In front of it stands the museum's mascot, Beatrice Badger (a costume of a badger head, arms, and legs, wearing a white T-shirt with a Beatrice picture on it). She has her left hand replaced with a hook and is wearing a pirate hat and eye patch.
