We thought this might be geared for kids but found it was well suited for both kids and adults. There is a sort of hunt for hidden drawers that mids seemed to love. If they find them all, they get their paper stamped and can select a "jewel" from the pirate chest. There are so many interesting exhibits including a... More

Be sure to visit this museum when you are in St. Augustine. My kids always ask to go here every time we are in town. The Disney Imagineers did a great job designing the layout and interactive exhibits. We enjoyed Captain Mayhem's tour this past Saturday (call the museum to find out when he is there, it's an additional bonus... More

Great place to learn about all the Pirates and what they were famous for. Also all the treasures brought up by different people from the ships that have sunk. Lots of guns, swords, and cannons on exhibit to we were probably there for two hours.

Really enjoyed the museum. Not for young children. Lots of history and artifacts to see. They also have a few interactive displays. Some of the exhibits are on loan from other museums and universities.

My family and I enjoyed the trip at the pirate museum. It's great for all ages. My 10 and 15 year boys thought it was pretty cool. We did a group tour of the museum and they gave us pop quiz questions on old fashion pirates Legacys I would go again. I thought it was going to be boring but... More

I was expecting this museum to be more for kids but I was pleasantly surprised. There are a lot of things for kids to do but much more. See artifacts from the Atoca shipwreck, silver bars, gold bars and many more artifacts from the age of pirates. Very interesting museum.

This museum boasts a lot of nice pieces and there is a ton of potential for a person to get educated about caribe pirates if they take their time here. There are of course plenty of cheeky displays for children's amusement but there is also a lot of good historical data here as well as some real true pirate artifacts.
