Very good activity for all ages. A must see if you'll be in the town for a few hours. I was welcomed by a comical clown dressed in pirate's clothes. I could not stop laughing. One is allowed to tour the museum at your own pace. The scenes looked virtual and the audios and videos bring the displays alive to... More

As you walk through the museum you get a great idea of what a pirate's life was like. The dioramas are so life like and the sights and sounds will keep you well interested. The kids will love it. Yo Ho Me Hearties Yo Ho..

We traveled to Nassau on a cruise and were looking for something to do with our son. He likes pirates so we decided to try the museum. We thought it was a fun place to explore. There are several exhibits and a simulated pirate ship to walk through. Some of the areas could be too spooky for little ones, but... More

This is a great way to spend an hour or two. Such great history, and the exhibits are awesome. I was very entertained. It is reasonably priced also.

Interesting and informative. The carved mural outside is really cool. If you're visiting the museum, stop at the bar next to the gift shop and take the Rum Tasting Tour.

We were somewhat skeptical of this museum, but were pleasantly surprised. It lacks real artifacts, but had some fun information and facts, and frankly, was a good way to get out of the heat for a little while. For our family of six (teens and adults), it was a relatively affordable way to spend 45 minutes and learn something about... More

When visiting Nassau, this should be a "don't miss." Begins with a meeting with the resident "pirate", who you will also see at the Nassau airport. Great for picture taking with this guy. Then the museum is super fun...more so for the youngsters. Plenty of exhibitions of pirates, ships, swords, treasure maps and more. Much like a Disney production. Along... More

The place certainly lived up to its name. You will filled ripped off the minute the unfriendly hosts greets you. You get to see the outside of what may be a great ship. Once you gio through a few of the ship cabins, you begin to realize this is just a big rip off. A few wax statutes and some... More

I noticed many people skipping this place and not giving much attention so we did not think it was going to be fun. As soon as we entered we were all amazed and found this place to be fun, informative, and interactive. We definitely found this place to be worth every penny ($12.00 per person- Adults). Take time to visit... More

When we signed up for this excursion, we were expecting action and adventure like the Pirates of the Caribbean. It was completely the opposite. We figured out that there are probably only 3 or 4 people who work there- 2 that rotate at the door, and 1 or 2 working the gift shop. The exhibits were still and boring with... More
