This is a private money making venture by a treasure hunter. Gift shop is filled with crap made in China.

Museum was fairly good. There were more paintings and writings about the pirates than actual artifacts. They had a fair amount of artifacts, but not nearly enough as we would have liked to see. It was $10 pp for admission, which wasn't bad.

The map showed this as an "exploration museum," but it was really just an expensive tourist trap. If you're looking for serious and informative displays on undersea exploration and archaeology, this isn't the place. If your young child just likes to play pirate, maybe this is a place to go on a rainy day.

This wasn't a bad museum, but I expected to see a lot more booty! There was *some* pirate booty there, and in once case you could stick your finger in and touch real silver coins recovered from the pirate ship, but there really wasn't much of the actual booty on display. That was sort of a let-down. There was, however, a lot of cool information about pirates and how they lived, how their society was, etc. Learned some things I didn't know before. So it wasn't bad. I just wanted more booty! Arrr!

Very kid friendly and informative. The museum is out on MacMillan Wharf. It has treasures that were pulled up from the sea bottom which are really amazing. Be sure to get a coupon from any tour book for a discount
