This museum wasn't here the last time we were in St. Augustine. I'm glad we decided to visit it. They have a fantastic collection of artifacts. Take time to see them all and read the information. Don't forget to take the guided tour. It's well worth your time and it's a lot of fun. I plan on going back the... More

My husband and I were visiting St. Augustine for Memorial Day Weekend and found this museum - so happy we did! The history was very interesting even to me - not a big history buff. We loved Captain Wayward's tour because he portrays the perfect pirate from days gone by and he was GREAT with the little kids on the... More

What a cool, unique museum! The tour was made especially fun and informative by our pirate guide, CPT Wayward. He was entertaining and pointed out many things I would have probably missed along the way. I learned so much from him and really enjoyed my time there!

We happened upon the Pirate and Treasure Museum on our way to another attraction and decided to pop in. My son had never shown much interest in pirates but loves history. He ate this place up! The place is full of fascinating artifacts, interactive kiosks and so much history. The best surprise was the guided tour from a wonderfully entertaining... More

i was surprised at the museum's quality. it turned into a quick but informative history lesson. i especially loved the animated screen of history done similar to video games to get the current kids interested in learning the history around them.

I have had the opportunity to visit other Pirate museums and the St Augustine location far surpasses them in exhibits and detailed history. We were very pleased with the breadth and scope the information. You can proceed at any rate you desire to enjoy the surroundings. I could only wonder at discovering one famous pirate sued an author of pirate... More
