The kids and the hubs wanted to go. I did not. I figured it would be an over priced waste of time but I caved and we went. Boy was I surprised! It was a smidge pricey but two of my three kids didn't have to pay for admission. It was interactive, entertaining, CLEAN, and informative. We were there for... More

Small museum so it didn't take much time to explore. My wife and I found it to be interesting, because of the local touch. It added some "color" to our St Augustine visit.

The exhibits are amazing - especially with the odd store front. The interactive displays, "treasure" hunt, and just all of the neat artifacts were fun. Wish this could have been in conjunction with the pirate ship in the harbor. You would never know how cool the displays were until you get inside. A tiny bit expensive but well worth the... More

We took the family. A lot of interactive things to do. The 5 year old got a little bored but the 8 year old liked it. Expensive for less than an hour's worth of entertainment.

We spent a couple of hours here on a rainy day, and we had a lot of fun. The best part, IMHO, was the story room where you sit with headphones, the room darkens, and you listen to Blackbeard getting killed! There was too much reading on most of the items for our teenagers who just wanted to get through... More

We were blown away at the depth and breadth of the artifacts. Good historical perspectives and computer interaction available about the most famous pirates.

This is a very informative place on the lives and deaths of pirates. We were given a sheet to find hidden treasure in the museum. It was a little cramped with people bringing strollers inside with no children in them. Probably should leave the strollers outside if the child is not going to sit in it. We enjoyed the museum...

The Pirate Museum is awesome and well worth a visit. Ticket prices very reasonable and there is lots to see. There was a costumed "pirate" staff member who was very entertaining! A very well run museum. Our family really enjoyed it!
