Don't miss this exhibit for a look into Blackbeard's world. Very educational. Stand beside a Blackbeard lifelike figure for a photo to share with friends.

Wife and I love history and always fascinated by local legends. We ended up spending a couple hours reading actual diaries, newspaper articles and government documents related to BlackBeard. Never aware of his prior service to England raiding French ships, how he ran his ship aground, barricade of Charleston & ransom, and the fact he had been pardoned by the... More

Great exhibit if you are into that sort of thing. Has tons of information and artifacts about Blackbeard. I would like to see something like that about Ocracoke Island itself. Nice gift shop. Everyone should do this once but probably wouldn't be a repeat thing.

With tickets being super cheap ($4 for adults if I remember correctly) this is a perfect cheap family fun activity. It's filled with great facts about Blackbeard and his life. You get to explore Edward Teach's life before + after becoming a pirate + even how he got his ship "Queen Anne's Revenge"! There is great art all around the... More

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.
