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.

Small and fun. We are really into history, especially when it comes to pirates! Affordable stop. Gift shop had some unique gifts along with the normal shop stuff. We loved it! Attendant was extremely gracious to us. It is only open until 2 pm on Sunday's. That is kind of unusual.

Was very informative to read about this very famous pirate and his raids around the area. I was expecting more, though,as it was small! Good gift shop.

We all have heard of the Pirate " Black Beard." This Stop off has a museum in the back( with a price) and a Gift Shop to buy your Priate Vacation memories.

If you are interested in the history of pirates, this is the place to go. The gift shop is unique and affordable. The pirate exhibit is small but packed with a lot of history on Blackbeard. My entire family walked away new information and fun facts about a Blackbeard's life.
