Teach's Hole Blackbeard Exhibit is a unique attraction devoted to all things "piratical." Since 1992, the exhibit and its pirate specialty shop have been a favorite destination for families visiting Ocracoke Island. The exhibit features a life-like recreation of Blackbeard, a weapons display, old bottles, original art, a pirate flag display, ship models, and interactive activities.

After reading other reviews, my expectations were very low. That being said, I was still disappointed. Please save your money. The "movie" screen was no larger than an iPad and the "movie" was filmed in the 1970's. I want my $4 back!!!!

The owners have a very comprehensive collection of artifacts and information about Blackbeard and other pirates. Yes, there is quite a bit of information to read but it's worth the time. At $4.00 I believe the admission price to be fair. The gift shop has a variety of pirate themed items for purchase and the prices are in line with... More

We have a 9-year old and very much enjoyed going through the exhibit, reading/learning about Blackbeard, and talking with the staff person up front. A great stop along our way.

Great exhibit on Blackbeard and pirates. Small but wealth of information and fun facts. Little known info. Price is very reasonable. Fun place

Small but informative. Lots of things I didn't know about pirates and especially Blackbeard. Tour of museum is self guided with lots of history to read, pictures and artifacts to see. There is even a couple videos to watch. There is also a small gift shop which both my wife and I took advantage of.

We found this spot on our Ocracoke adventure. Nice gift shop area and access to clean bathrooms. The exhibit shared a lot of history about Edward Teach aka Blackbeard and local references.

I read the reviews in advance and knew it would be small. But wow, it's small. The exhibit side is informative. The store side is very cute with a lot of pirate things I haven't seen elsewhere. For me it was worth it, but for the other adults and kids in my party, not so much.

We always stop to do pirate pictures everytime we come. We didnt even go inside to shop this year but we did stop to do our traditional pirate pictures. The shop is very nice as well although it does seem to be a bit over priced.

We popped in on a bike ride around the island and found this very well-made, informative exhibit on Blackbeard. This nicely designed walk-through told the in-depth story of "everything-we-now-know" about Blackbeard including artifacts, intriguing anecdotes, and a well-done 8 minute video which reinforces and enhances what you've read through the exhibit. After talking to the long-time owner, we learned that... More
