“Unique”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

I liked the information that I got about the Whydah and it's background. Saw a number of artefacts salvaged from the sea. The entire salvage story is narrated as also a short film on the National Geographic is on loop. It was a very different and unique experience for my holiday

“A must for lovers of maritime folklore - great for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

It tells many aspects of treasure exploration, and some of the broader story of trade and the settlement of the Americas. Lots of related items for kids and for adults are available in the well stocked gift shop. A great pick for a rainy day.

“Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

This was a great activity for a non beach day! The pirate museum boasts booty from the only true pirate ship ever found. It was definitely interesting!

This is a private money making venture by a treasure hunter. Gift shop is filled with crap made in China.

“Great history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Museum was fairly good. There were more paintings and writings about the pirates than actual artifacts. They had a fair amount of artifacts, but not nearly enough as we would have liked to see. It was $10 pp for admission, which wasn't bad.
