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!

Not much to the "exhibit." A small hallway without any authentic Blackbeard-related artifacts. More to see in the gift shop, honestly. Really should offer it for free just to get people to visit. I probably would have bought something in the gift shop if I didn't feel like I had just been ripped off going through the "exhibit." Up your game!

I have visited Ocracoke for two decades and had never visited here. The museum is cheap to enter but has lots of period correct exhibits to view and a couple videos about Black Beard. I enjoyed going through and viewing the exhibit and also the gift shop.

It's a short little museum. Perfect attention length for my 2nd grade son. Price was reasonable, and the gift shop is nice.

Not sure how to write about this place... basically, it's a gift shop with a cheesy "museum"? Not recommended if you want to really learn about Blackbeard.

The museum tells the story of Edward Teach, aka Blackbeard. There are good displays, and informative audible exhibits. A must for a pirate enthusiast!
