Loved the pirate museum! This was my second time visiting the museum and I recommend you buying the combo tickets with the Colonial Quarter to save money. Great history and collection! Great for all ages and is air conditioned!

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!
