This was a fun and inexpensive museum to go through. It gave some interesting facts about the local history of the Caribbean pirates.

“Surprisingly good quality”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

This museum is very well done and very informative! It traces the history of piracy in the Bahamas with displays, text, audio, and video. It includes walking through a model of the lower deck of a ship. There are also displays of artifacts as well as portraits and written bios of the most famous pirates. It does not take very long to view, especially if you are more a viewer than a reader in museums, so you will have to judge whether the cost is worth it. After visiting historic sites in Nassau that are not very well developed as tourist sites, I was not expecting much at Pirates of Nassau, but was pleasantly surprised! If you enjoy learning about the history of places you visit, add this museum to your Nassau shopping trip.

“Pirates of Nassau”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

A fun hour or so looking back on the pirating history of the Carribean. The models a well constructed and the information both spoken and written was also very good. Kids would love this, as the big kids did!

“Interesting Museum - Learned Something New”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

We were in town as a cruise ship port visit. The museum is only a few blocks away from the Cruise Ship Terminal.

Admission was $12. You walk past life size dioramas of what life was like during the Piracy Age. Then you walk down a hall with displays of the various famous pirates and their histories.

It is not a huge museum, but we thought it was interesting. We learned something new about Pirates and their place in history.

“Beware of the stocks”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

An interesting attraction giving people a taste of what it would have been like in those times, we found the souvenir shop a bit expensive (but aren't they all), there is a bar restaurant at the side of it which we found reasonably priced
