Having 1st been to the Pirate Museum in St. Augustine, this museum was a little anti-climatic but perhaps more suitable for children. There was interesting information about Blackbeard to read and the gift shop had some fun things for pirate loving children.

This is a small exhibit in the gift store. This exhibit is only worth it if your are a Blackbeard history buff. The fee was about $25 for our family of six. I don't think we would pay again. However, the gift shop was a great place to get T-shirts. 3 of my sons bought shirts there.

I enjoyed it. It's very small but full of information about Blackbeard. I learned a lot about him and life as a pirate on Ocracoke. Big gift shop full of pirate stuff.

If you love Pirate stories how can you not stop. Neat little store, cool things and prices aren't bad. Museum is smaller but let's remember its focusing on one Pirate, not all of them. If you like lore...ya gotta go.

Sort of cool. Don't miss it. It was not crowded when we went. You can take your picture with Blackbeard.

I was really expecting a lot more. Not much to see besides some pictures and some fun facts. I saw more down in Saint Augustine. Thought there would be a lot since this is the death of Blackbeard location

Teach's Hole is a must stop each time we visit Ocracoke. The kids love seeing the exhibits and there are plenty of pirate themed souvenirs in the gift shop. Yes the exhibit is on the small side, but it is always fun to visit. It would be nice if different artifacts could be rotated into the display.

I LOVE walking around. The displays are attractive, and there are books for both young readers and adult readers. Who doesn't love reading about pirates?

If you like pirate paraphernalia, the store is pretty cute. But don't expect to learn much from the exhibit.
