Who knew there were so many pirates all over the world? Every continent had a unique ship and captain and you can see all of their stories here. And you can touch treasure from hundreds of year ago.

Visited on extremely hot summer day. Parking probably best done at Visitor Center ($12/day). Museum directly across from Castillo de San Marcos (which is a great place to visit in cooler weather). My 2 grandsons and I waited in museum gift shop while husband found parking. Surprisingly items in gift shop were reasonable in price. Before heading there , I... More

Visited the St Augustine Pirate and Treasure Museum 07/23/16. Captain Mayhem was our tour guide. He did a fantastic job with the tour and was amazing with the children on the tour. He really helped bring the museum to life. The museum itself was quite interesting. If you're into history it's great. Take the time to read the description of... More

Packed with authentic pirate artifacts and lots of fun and interesting information about pirates and about how life was at that time. They have one of only 2 authentic original Jolly Roger pirate flags! We enjoyed it. It's not huge, but there's a lot there to see.

First and only museum we have visited in st Augustine. The artifacts are authentic and fun. The exhibits are interesting and educational for all age groups. The guided tour is an absolute must. Best money I have spent on our family vacation. The whole family enjoyed from the 6 year old to the 70 year old grandmother.

Part of the museum is finding the decently obscured treasure clues. We had to go back through as we had missed a couple. Many are easy to find and all relate a tiny bit of pirate lore. Fun for the whole famliy AND the entire thing is Air Conditioned! Take an hour at early afternoon and cool off inside.

This was a lot of fun ! Interactive -- some computer things to do -- and a scavenger hunt. The artifacts were awesome. Great tour guide. Take the time to look at everything.

Any good pirate would love this exhibit. There is so much here to see and explore. The kids can fire a cannon and search for treasure. I think they have something about every English, French and other European pirates that sailed the seven seas. This attraction is worth seeing especially if you are a fan of the pirates.
