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. As visitors leave the exhibit, they enter a one of a kind pirate specialty shop. Kids of all ages will enjoy Teach’s Hole!

It might be too detailed for small children but lots of cool stuff if you like history and take the time to read the captions.Give yourself 30 -45 minutes unless you are a speed reader. The gift...

Hemmed and hawed about seeing this, lady in the parking lot said worth the 4 bucks, she was right! Good stories in there about pirates and all the goings on. Interesting and informative. Really cool gift shop. Kids would love this place, even a cut out photo op for you to put your head in and become Blackbeard the Pirate!

This is a fun little exhibit if you like pirates. It really deserves more of a good rating than average, but I'll blame that on TripAdvisor for not having that option. They have lots of pictures of Blackbeard, and point out that none of the artists actually ever saw him. They have an 8-minute film and lots of info. I... More

It's great to see that Blackbeard is still plundering riches today. By this I mean, his museum is charging way too much money for the privilege of looking at a few posters and paintings by local artists. They have a few artifacts from the Queen Anne's Revenge; but the rest are fakes or copies. The highlight is an 8 minute... More

You truly can't come down here and not think about pirates at some point. As a kid I love reading about Black Beard,so this was a cool stop for me. They have real nice set up and worth the visit.

Did the typical Outer Banks sojourn on a rainy day! Drove 30 minutes South, took the Ferry, and then paid an excessive admission for 3 to walk thru this attraction, that took less than five minutes. Buy a book, or surf the internet, if you truly want to know about Blackbeard!

we made our annual trip to Ocracoke in September. Of course, our first stop had to be Teach's hole. We have been going there for years, as our son is a Huge Blackbeard fan. The shop has a lot of nice merchandise , for the tots and adults. Our son who is an adult always gets a real replica sword... More

I avoided this place last year but decided to give it a try this visit. It was a nice little tour of Blackbeard's history as told over the years. For only $4 for an adult admission (the gift shop is free to enter) it was well worth the money. I won't describe all that was there so I won't spoil... More

This was good to visit to learn a little history about the island and Blackbeard himself. Our young kids were interested too. Not a ton to see but worth a visit if you are on the island.
