Attraction details
Owner description: Teach's Hole Blackbeard Exhibit is a unique attraction devoted to all things "piratical." Since 1992, the exhibit and its pirate specialty shop have been a favorite destination for families visiting Ocracoke Island. The exhibit features a life-like recreation of Blackbeard, a weapons display, old bottles, original art, a pirate flag display, ship models, and interactive activities. As visitors leave the exhibit, they enter a one of a kind pirate specialty shop. Kids of all ages will enjoy Teach’s Hole!

The exhibit here includes great info on the most famous pirate in NC history, Blackbeard. I just ask one small favor of you...please, if you have children, teach them to be respectful when they're in the exhibit. There is a short historical movie that plays in the back room and we couldn't hear it over the kids that came in screaming and running around. It was $3 or $4 for adults, and children of a certain age have to pay too. Why waste your money. Stay in the exhibit at least long enough to explain some of the information to your children. I have never in my life been so turned off by such rude children and un-caring parents. This would have gotten a full 5 (excellent), but my visit was ruined by those that have clearly never been in public before.

A little bit touristy but the museum is interesting and I learned quite a bit about Blackbird and other pirates. I was hesitant to visit, but glad I did!

We were staying in Radanthe. I'm not sure I would take the 45 minute ferry ride over just to see this museum. It was interesting. And if you have good luck, you might be able to see the wild mustang herd a couple of miles north. We did not...

There was a small movie that less interesting. The exhibits were interesting. I imagine it's hard to get good information on a pirate.

The Blackbeard Museum on Ocracoke was a fast, interesting attraction to visit. The owners have numerous artifacts and artistic depictions of Blackbeard / William Teach in numerous artistic media. The exhibit gives one a good idea of who Blackbeard was.
