We decided to give this a shot and we were very happy with what we saw and learned. They even had a working curator showing how they clean up and discover treasure trapped inside some of the sea floor.
My wife and I finally got around to visiting this place (only after we found discounts by going to the Yarmouth Library) on tickets. I forget how much we saved but it was significant enough to visit. They do have some trinkets but there are...More

Amazing pirate museum in Yarmouth about a shipwreck off the coast of Cape Cod over 100 years ago. Try to get coupons or a groupon before you go, prices could add up if you go with a lot of people. Great exhibits and displays to...More
Very interesting-not really a little children's museum. Lots to learn about the discovery of a pirate ship and all the treasure that has been discovered right here on the Cape. Be sure to use the $3.00 coupon found in many restaurants and hotel lobbies
The museum is well put together, very visual, great for family fun. The guided, hand-held speaker part of the tour was a bit corny and there isn't any staff interaction on the tour, but the lab tech was cool and informative.
It gives you a different perspective. It is very interesting to see these artifacts and the audio gives you information about them. You do not have to have it though as there are written descriptions too.
