Thanks for coming to visit! Sometimes, we're not too sure if Captain Mayhem is real either - but he's certainly a stellar member of our crew - and I'm glad that your crew enjoyed his tour! We hope that you'll come see us again! More

Was not sure at first thinking that it may be a ripoff. When I walked into the gift shop to purchase tickets, it looked like a child's museum. Upon our entrance, what we saw were ancient artifacts from the 1600's. They even have Jolly Roger's Flag. This museum is also fun for children. If a child finds all the clues,... More

This attraction turned out to be much more enjoyable than expected. Lots of displays of treasure and pirate items as well as a history of the local pirates. some interactive items for the children. Entertaining for all ages. Tip: Right across from the fort, stroll over after visiting the fort.

Stopped at the pirate museum for my seven year old son. Joined the tour with "captain Mayhem" for a fabulous yet educational tour. So worth the time spent. This location has some amazing artifacts related to pirate history. Thank you "Captain William Mayhem" for sharing your knowledge!

On our last full day here I decided to drag my parents to the pirate museum with me. We got in just in time for the guided tour with Captain Mayhem and it was honestly the start of the upswing of the vacation. The tour was informative and fun and it didn't stick to only the PG-rated stuff (some PG-13... More

Pirate history was brought to life with the very entertaining & informative "Captain Mayhem". No additional charge, but definitely earned a gratuity! Also disgned by designer of the Pirates of the Caribe an of Disney. One of our favorite sites we have ever visited!

Thanks for coming to see us and for taking the tour with Captain Mayhem! He's a great part of our crew - and we're proud to have him. I'm also glad to hear that you enjoyed the "Blackbeard's Final Battle" audio show - which was, in fact, created by some friendly Imagineers. We;re happy you decided to visit, and thanks... More

This museum was filled with pirate information and artifacts. There is also a room that takes you "below deck" to learn about Blackbeard's demise. Give yourself about 1-2 hours to walk through depending on how much time you want to read and get involved. We did the self guided tour. We didn't know about the guided tour until I read... More

Thanks for coming to see us! I'm sorry if we gave a little scare to the 6-year old, but glad your crew enjoyed the museum - we're definitely family friendly, but we don't shy away from the full history of piracy. I'm happy to hear that you took your time and explored all the facets of the museum. We're thrilled... More

How can the oldest city in North America not get 5 stars ? This is a must visit in the United States, full of history; Colonial, Civil and Native, there is a lot of culture here. There are plenty of tourist attractions, good dining, tours, beaches and more.  They have also done a fantastic job at creating a haunted aura... More

Captain Mayhem was the best guide I have ever experienced. Knowledgable, fun and really held the attention of almost all of the group. (Hard to compete with a teenaged girl and her phone). Will return next trip. Give the man top shelf rum.
