Argh! Went on a pirate ship ride. First time in years of coming here. What a fun thing to do! I highly recommended it and my friend and I will do the rum runner next time! Can’t wait to go back to St. Augustine!

This is not some disney-fied stuff. It contains actual historic data and interactive exhibits of pirate and privateer history.

This is indeed a must see for pirate lovers of any age. All 3 of our boys 10,7, 4 really enjoyed it. The scavenger hunt helps give the younger ones something to do. A bit on the pricey side, but overall still worth it.More

This place has some cool stuff that Kids like, but it's really not worth the almost $60 I spent to get my family in there. You can be through the whole thing in 20 minutes. Conversely, the Ripleys museum cost about the same (maybe less)...More

If I remember correctly it was not long, you can do the tour which was maybe a half hour maybe 45min, but well worth the tour. Or you can just go look through the museum on your own!
