Description

from St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum
The St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum is a unique collection of authentic pirate artifacts coupled with elements of interactive technology that reveal a scintillating historic adventure through the Golden Age of Piracy and the lives of the era's most infamous pirates.

With the "please touch" and audio-animatronics of a theme park coupled with the provenance of a museum, guests undertake an awesome pirate journey both above and below deck filled with compelling lore, surprising facts and an abundance of sensory perceptions.

Among more than 800 museum-quality artifacts, threaded through the storyline is the original journal of Captain Kidd's last voyage, the only authentic pirate treasure chest in the world that originally belonged to Captain Thomas Tew and the oldest pirate Wanted Poster for the capture of Captain Henry Every.

Our 4 year old loved hunting for the clues on the treasure map! We had so much fun here! There was a lot of reading for us grown ups and a little treasure map with clues that our son was so excited over, he got to pick his treasure at the end when he completed it and still talks about it to this day. The staff are wonderful, the exhibits are awesome and the gift shop has so much pirate booty!

"GREAT VISIT"

Two adults visited this attraction on a Wednesday afternoon in early January. We spent about three hours but we like to read all the descriptions, and there were a lot of them. Also, there were many interactive exhibits telling the stories of famous pirates. Note that many but certainly not all of the museum exhibits require reading in order to get the most out of them. An enjoyable way to spend an afternoon. Plus this time of year, they're open until 7pm, whereas most other attractions in town close around 5pm.

One of our favorite places to visit. You can walk around at your own pace, but the live tour guides make it so worth it. Lots of stories and laughing, you will learn stuff too! Kids can do a scavenger hunt to earn a jewel at the end.

"Great trip with Grandkids"

This was a lot of fun. Lots of interesting facts and great treasures to see. The kids loved hunting for the clues on the treasure map. And the haunted room with the battle was great. A little scary for the 4 and 6 years old. I will recommend it to my friends who have kids. I will also come again myself. Frances Smith, Orange Park,FL.

I had a blast (pun intended)! Thank you, authentic Scotsman-Pirate Guide in legit costume, “Cptn. Wm. Mayhem,” and all at the Museum for taking us back to “The Golden Age of Pirates”; Thank you, Cindy, for answering my queries on the fone and making me deffny wanna visit; Thank U, awesome Artist Guide (name?), with the T Shirt that matched your forearm tattoo, for your warm welcome; It’s a great place for history lovers, and visually stimulating — The medical arts window kinda freaked me out — some whacky scissor thangs for removing bladder stones, or some such? Dang. Take the tour with a Guide (tip them well, or be banished to Van Dieman’s Land!) to get yer money’s worth, mates. I liked Cptn. Mayhem’s humour and warmth. Coulda been 5 starrrrrs, if only there was mention of, or any kinda tribute, or even so much as a wee sketch of The King of the Pirates, Jean Laffite, (yes, I spelled that name correctly) of Barataria Bay, Louisiana fame, somewheres on board — He was more of a Privateer, than a Pirate, yes; a huge historical figure not to be overlooked nor forgotten, to be sure! (No poster of “The Buccaneer” w/Yul Brynner as Laffite, c.1950, in the film section — huuuuge demerit). Would’ve been cool if they had pirates singing shanties, live or recorded, for sure! I had a grrrrrreat time. You can exit & re-enter free, too.
