They really enjoyed looking for the symbol in each room and completing the activities to get the "treasure" at the end. It was a little loud... More

This was by far the best pirate museum I've seen. Loaded with interactive exhibits, artifacts, history & realistic displays. Definitely worth checking out when you're in St. Augustine.

Very few rangers on staff, only one on the day we went, to answer questions and very infrequent tours! Truly sad. Did not like a woman dressed as a Patriot soldier and carrying a squeegy around; definitely lost the authencity there! If the Park Rangers arent able to assist or caanot because of budget cuts, then how about the option... More

Found ourselves looking to fill a rainy day in the area. The museum was a fun way to spend 30-40 minutes. Had fun looking for the treasure pieces. The displays were pretty interesting. My 13 year old son found it more appealing than many of the other historical sites in the area. Who doesn't like pirates?!

My wife and I took our 4 and 5 year old boys to the museum and they really enjoyed it. Being a Saturday it was of course very busy, but we still had a good time and spent about an hour touring the place. If you like any kind of Pirate History or just History in general you will love... More

Whether you are a couple or a family, young or old --- you are going to enjoy this attraction. It was a pleasant surprise and worth admission. Other reviews offer the details, but I did want to encourage everyone to visit. We saw people of all ages really engaged in the exhibits and interactive setting. Naturally, children seemed the most... More

My wife wasn't thrilled with my desire to see this, but was very impressed by the display. I'd say don't miss it.

I've been a fan of pirate history and lore since the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie came out. Plus, St. Augustine has a rich history surrounding pirates, so it made everything feel a little more real while visiting. This museum was very interactive, which would make it a great stop for those with children. I really liked the movie section,... More
