Ocracoke is the most beautiful beach in the U.S., but when it rains, your entertainment is limited. The whole island is full of Mom and Pop type places. So, if you don't enjoy small boutiques for shopping or eating at one of the local eateries, this might be one of the only things to do if it rains. They have... More

Small exhibit, but very informative. A lot of paintings and such, but the story is all there. A short 8 minute video plays out the whole story of Blackbeard on Ocracoke. Small children would get bored quickly, older children interested in pirates and history would probably find it interesting. Adults like myself who like these sort of attractions would enjoy... More

My family and I were not going to go here based on other reviews, but when I saw the price and we had a coupon (and our son really wanted to go) we decided to try it. With a coupon we had we paid just under 9 dollars for 2 adults and 1 child. If you take your time (don't... More

Not much to offer but it is interesting. Blackbeard did reside in and travel through this area. It is expensive. There is a gift shop on the side.

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
