Going to see this attraction was a spur of the moment decision, but I'm glad we made it. I was surprised at the quality of the items on display. Being in the medical filed, I was especially interested in seeing the display of antique tools of the trade. There were quite a few interactive exhibits which both adults and kids... More

Loved how interactive this museum was! We had a blast learning about pirates and seeing all of the artifacts! We were on a budget on this trip and this museum was reasonably priced! :)

For those willing to invest the time to read, there is a wealth of information throughout the museum on the history of piracy. And for those who are just looking for some fun (aka our kids), they...

A well dressed pirate takes you on a tour through the museum. He is very entertaining and knowledgeable. If you are interested in pirates history and folk lore it is worth the admission.

Was a great tour with a lot of informations for kids and adult. What made this experience so interesting was certainly the pirate. Don't remember his name but I think it was Will... You HAVE to do this tour with him! Too bad I can't add a picture....

My oldest grandson is a pirate nut, for whatever reason a 6 year old would be.. I was impressed by the great displays, the visual navigation room showed how navigation was done in that time frame, sure was a history lesson for sure. The artifacts were real, log books, guns, coins, and it also was a good look into life... More

I wouldn't have thought it, but this is an essential place to visit to truly understand the history of St Augustin. The reenactor did a great job of explaning the pirates life and their connection to the city

Quite expensive for a fairly small museum. The guy on the door took our 50 bucks and then told us that we couldn't see the place in the normal way as Discovery Channel were filming. We had to enter by the exit door and go round in reverse with all the sound effects switched off so as not to disturb... More
