If you have children and want to experience something fun this is a great place! The location is right across from a real fort, the Castillo de San Marcos and you can just imagine getting attacked by pirates in the Old Town of St Augustine, FL!

Be ready to cast off. The ship holds the treasure and you must be ready to follow a dead man's chest.

This was a great experience. Took our 9 year old son- we were blown away by how well done this was. He had a great time looking for the hidden drawers and firing the cannons. There were many authentic exhibits, including an actual Jolly Roger flag. Lots of interactive exhibits as well. A great way to spend a couple of... More

This was a fun stop and across the way from Castillo de San Marcos. Many interesting things to see and read. Some interactive things as well. Very informative and fun for the kids. A little tourist trap feel to it. But solid overall.

Okay, okay, sorry for the silly title. My pirate/navy/sea loving fellow JUST loved this! I also enjoyed it, because since i cannot even swim, I'm absolutely amazed that people from 100 to 500 years ago sailed the seas, lost treasures, and modern man has recovered those. We spent almost 2 hours going through, then went back after lunch because my... More

Visited the museum with not much expectation, I found the narrative very knowledgeable and pleasantly witty, adults and children will enjoy the performance by Mr Mayhem. Take the whole family and enjoy.

It had a lot of interesting little facts about it but I would recommend if you have kids that are in the Pirates going here for sure unless you're an adult who is really in the Pirates you're not going to have as much fun as you think you are it's a little expensive but in my opinion it wasn't...

Great place to visit especially on a rainy day. When we walked by the museum early in the day the two pirates standing outside struck up a conversation with my son making him want to go to the museum. After visiting another place we went to the museum to get out of the rain. It was fantastic. They have a... More

Captain William Mayhem is an amazing tour guide. He was great with the children as well as with the adults. He looks like a real pirate and is full of interesting information. The pirate tour is a definate must see.

This is one of the better museums that I was able to visit while in St. Augustine. It was pretty small, but made creative use of every bit of space. The authentic flag and treasure chest that they boast were awesome. Lots of audio and touch-screen interactive features, so the more time and effort you put in, the more reward... More
