Lovely local museum, great exhibits of pirates, boats, coast guard operations. Right downtown, this is a must see for anyone interested in pirates or local history. Let local Madi Gras queen Kimmerlin greet you with infectious energy and no holds barred commentary. Wonderful animated video...More

This is a very nice museum (which is free, by the way!). The exhibit about Blackbeard the Pirate is fascinating, well-curated, and makes a visit to the museum completely worthwhile. Other than pirates, though, I, personally, am not particularly interested in maritime history or themes,...More
