It was raining and cold when we stopped by St. Augustine's on a road trip, so this was the perfect place for us to spend a few hours while the weather blew over. Inside the museum, you will find endless information about all things pirate...More

Our tour guide, Cpt. Mayhem, was fun and informative. He kept the kids entertained with interactive displays and the adults with smart but kid friendly inuendos. I look forward to visit the tour again when we go back to St. Augustine.

How long should I expect to be there?

Response from Wanderlust_Scribe | Reviewed this property |
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!
This may be a dumb question, but are pets allowed? I have an ESA (canine) that is under 15 lbs, is quiet, and can be in a bag/carrier the entire time.

They may not permit the dog, only because the artifacts are so rare and ancient they take a lot of precautions in protecting them. I would recommend calling ahead and double checking. The staff is friendly and it won't feel... More
