This museum is really well done. It's not the usually kitschy atmosphere that some of the little museums have. The exhibits were well themed and there is a lot to see. For $12 it's a good way to spend a couple hours.

We expected some swashbuckling adventure with pirates, treasure and swords but instead got a few rooms full of artifacts that you had to read about on your own. The treasure/scavenger hunt was fun for the kids but there really wasn't a lot of hands on things for anyone to do. No guides to answer questions or talk about anything...disappointing at... More

i was skeptical about this museum, but once you go thru the entrance into the museum you will be amazed at the amount of artifact they have. In comparison to the museum in Nassau, this one is smaller but it was a ton of stuff. And what made this attraction a hit with the kids was Captain Mayhem. He was... More

I'm glad that you were able to participate in one of Captain Mayhem's tours as well - we're pleased to have him as part of our crew,... More

I love this museum and have always been fascinated by pirates. The museum has a large selection of pirate history. I just wish the gift shop had a larger selection of videos and books.

My husband and I went here in February. Normally we are not the type of people to go on a guided tour with someone dressed up as a pirate, sounds cheesy. NOT AT ALL, this guided tour was so much fun and the best thing we did in St. Augustine. We are bringing our family back today. You will not... More

Heard alot of hype about this museum. Good for kids, has alot of hands on interaction. Set up was pretty cool, but too bad it wasn't bigger.

My children love pirates and really enjoyed this museum. When my inlaws came to visit they went again. The other day they asked me when we can go for the third time! They also really enjoyed the treasure hunt and the small prize at the end.
