Attraction details
Owner description: Teach's Hole Blackbeard Exhibit is a unique attraction devoted to all things "piratical." Since 1992, the exhibit and its pirate specialty shop have been a favorite destination for families visiting Ocracoke Island. The exhibit features a life-like recreation of Blackbeard, a weapons display, old bottles, original art, a pirate flag display, ship models, and interactive activities. As visitors leave the exhibit, they enter a one of a kind pirate specialty shop. Kids of all ages will enjoy Teach’s Hole!

“Great Gift Shop and Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2012

This was an enjoyable stop for my son and I. The museum is good value at $4 per adult (pick up a tour book or coupon at the visitor center for $1 off) and covers BlackBeard's story well.

The gift shop has a number of pirate themed items. They range from inexpensive toys to quality goods (like small cedar treasure chests). They also have themed T-shirts in toddler through adult sizes. They also sell some shirts that have the cool feature of changing when exposed to sunlight (additional patterns and colours appear). They provide a special light table so you can see what happens before you buy. The gift shop alone is worth a visit.

Interesting facts. Make sure you watch the video. Would be nice if there were a few more interactive portions to it.

“not worth it at all!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2012

the store had so fun junky gifts but the exhibit was a waste of money and time... LITERALLY there was playmobile toy set of a pirate ship in the exhibit and a tiny 2 person bench in front of a tv to watch a poorly made movie about blackbeard. REALLY???!!!! Something so interesting was made a joke by this place.
