The place is decorated to a T. It is great inside. They have very good room separation and though going with the themed not every place looks the same. They have different rooms for different things and many are interactive and updated. Not your old school museum at all. Great information and history on places, pirates, and privateers. If you...

This is a very authentic museum of the pirate history of the area. With a real gold bar, a silver ingot and gold and silver coins of the time.

We loved our time at this museum. My girls are 3 and 5 and loved that there were all sorts of things for them to explore and play with while learning about the pirates. Our guide, William Mayhem, was fabulous. Honestly, he made the visit worth it and I totally recommend this to all people. My girls are pirate fanatics... More

The part of the museum where you put on headphones and listened the a pirate fight sounded very realistic. So much so that it scared the crap out of him. If you live pirates you'll love this museum.

This is a self guided and interactive tour. I have two boys that are 8 and 6. They LOVED it! They are given a treasure map at the beginning of the tour and have to find the pirate symbol in each room. When they find the symbol, they need to write down what they find on their map. Not only... More

The whole family loved this museum - truly, one of the high points of our vacation. Good for old and young alike. Packed with information, history, interactive exhibits, & treasure and artifacts from sunken ships. Definitely worth the ticket price. So glad Pat Croce brought his collection and museum to St. Augustine from Key West! The pirate who walks around... More
