We stopped by Teach's Hole, and learned a lot of background on Blackbeard! There's a walk-through tour, and nice souvenirs, too.

Low cost entry and nice history on Blackbeard. The little store attached has some interesting trinkets you can pick up.

Everything you wanted to know about Blackbeard is found right here. Some of the exhibits are a bit cheesy but that's one of the things I so love about this place. Seriously, go here, don't breeze your way through it but read and look, you'll...More

Its only 4 dollars to get in. Takes just 15 minutes to walk thru. A lot of paintings no new or real information. Disappointed.

This was our first time here. It’s a very small museum about the history of Blackbeard the pirate. The fee is minimal. We went through it fairly quick but it’s worth seeing at least once. You are allowed pictures inside.

I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this place. No, the museum isn't elaborate but $4 is nothing and seemed appropriate for what you get. I found all kinds of goodies in the gift shop - a super cool octopus tshirt, octopus ornament,...More

Wonderful pirate shop with things you won't find elsewhere! The Blackbeard exhibit is informative and fun. The staff is super friendly and the lady who waited on us even used her personal cell phone to help us find the amended ferry schedule. Definitely recommend this...More
