For an overpriced tourist trap, really wasnt too terribly bad. Lots of cool stuff to look at, very interactive, and surprisingly educational. I got a lot of awesome pictures from here! There were so many different things, you couldnt get bored. A lot like the Ripley's museum, except pirate themed. Liked it pretty well :)

It's a museum. About pirates. In a pirate town. What's not to love?!? But seriously, this is a professionally-done facility that is as educational as it is entertaining- and it's very entertaining!

If you go at a non peak time, like I did, it's a very short trip through the museum. Interesting displays, just a lot smaller than I thought it would be based on the price.

This museum is a treasure...literally. I really enjoyed the detail of each exhibit. The creators smartly integrated the true history and swashbuckling fun of pirate life so that adults and children get this museum.

This museum was full of hands-on things to do. They put a lot of detail into their scenes and they even allow you to participate in a type of hunt for different clues. You can shoot a virtual cannon and pretend you are actually on a pirate ship. It is fun for all ages. A place to feel like a kid again.
