Almost universally portrayed as a villain in movies and books, does this view of William Bligh stand scrutiny today?
Bligh - Hero or Villain challenges this popular narrative, looking beyond the Bounty mutiny to explore the many sides of this most infamous of maritime figures. Come and judge for yourself in this interactive and immersive exhibition like you've never experienced before. Step into Bligh's world - climb aboard a replica of the small boat Bligh and crew were set adrift in, see real breadfruit growing, cast your vote on whether you think Bligh was a 'hero' or 'villain' with a real-time voting system, and much more.
This immersive exhibition will come to life before your eyes!
