I originally thought this would be touristy, hokey and not worth the money. I was wrong! Full of history and authentic artifacts. Our pirate guide was very informative. Home of the only known surviving treasure chest. A must see!

As far as pirate museums go, this one lacked appeal. (The pirate museum in Beaufort, NC was much better!). The treasure map kept us there longer than we would have stayed otherwise. It did have a few neat items but overall would have not missed...More
Our adventure back in time with swashbuckling Captain Mayhem was great fun, and surprisingly informative. The museum is full of fascinating artifacts, and our tour with the aforementioned pirate-storyteller was a real treat. My wife, grandson and I enjoyed ourselves, and we'd have fun returning...More
My entire family continues to visit here every year! My kids look forward to it and constantly ask when we will go back! The museum contains a wealth of interesting pirate items.

The Pirate Tour was fantastic, the guide, who looked and sounded like a real pirate, was very knowledgeable and he didn’t white wash the history. They had many real museum pieces that you will not find elsewhere, it was a great place to visit.

We enjoyed the museum on our own for awhile when a Pirate arrived and called everyone together. He then gave us an informative tour. He seemed somewhat knowledgeable of the history and his costume was great. The children really enjoyed it.
Thank you for coming to see the museum! I'm glad that your crew had a good time visiting with ours - thanks again for visiting!
Wow!!! This place was way cooler than I expected. We started off with the tour, which I highly recommend. The guide, fully immersed in the role of a pirate, was very knowledgeable and easily made all of the artifacts housed very interesting and personal by...More

This museum is a lot better than what I expected. Lots of really neat artifacts and they do tours through the museum. As I was leaving a tour was about to get started. The man giving it dressed and talked like a pirate. The only...More
