This is a tiny little museum that they let way too many people in at a time. It was stuffy and crowded and we didn't learn much here that you can't get for free at other great museums in the area. The main attraction here is really the gift shop and you can find those anywhere. We were a little... More

The self-tour took us about 10 minutes, only about 2 rooms with some pictures and facts about Blackbeard, wasn't really interesting to me. Neat little gift shop at the end was cool.

The "exhibit" consists of two rooms with a few meager displays about Blackbeard. There is nothing you won't learn from looking at Wikipedia, or better OBX sites (eg Maritime Museum at Beaufort). It's cute, but you are basically paying $4 each to enter a gift shop.

My son in law, who loves pirates, was underwhelmed but the rest of us thought it was fine. Friendly staff, got a good shirt, had a good time.

The exhibit is relatively small, consisting of two connected rooms with pictures/stories hanging on the walls. If there are more than a few people in the exhibit area, you feel a bit rushed trying to read the provided information. A short film (about eight minutes) is shown on a small TV; there is only one small bench which seats two... More

It cost four dollars a person and you walk into two connected rooms and read the pictures on the wall. There is a short film on the history of Blackbeard. That is it and back to the gift shop you go. If it had been free, it would still not have been much. I was very disappointed. Sorry

It was hot; we were walking and wanted a place to cool off. It was interesting, but over priced. Cool t-shirts and souvenirs though!

Nice little museum for the price. Short but well done and it was interesting and educational for adults and children. We used it as an opportunity for the kids to learn about the areas history in a fun way. Perhaps adding a treasure hunt type quiz for the kids with a small prize at the end would make it a... More

For someone to be in a tourist business directed towards children and the parents who pay their way, one would think these folks would be a little nicer. The clerk initially complained about the amount of time we held the door open when entering the establishment. Yes, it may have taken a few seconds to get our party of 13... More
