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 place is great for adults and for the kids. My family really enjoyed the exhibit that they have. It is very informative and has a lot of neat pieces to look at. Everyone should stop here to gain the knowledge of Blackbeard.
