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.

"If you love history Captain Mayhem is worthwhile, no, NECESSARY, to visit!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

If you love history this is well worth your visit IF you take the tour with Captain Mayhem. You can go through the museum without taking the tour but you will miss sooo much. Captain Mayhem is certainly entertaining and enthusiastic but what comes through the most is the obvious passion to let the visitor know how it really was as opposed to the romantic movie version that most of us have in mind. Even the most well read of history will find new information with Captain Mayhem. So definitely go no matter what the age and please be sure to take the Captain Mayhem tour (no extra charge). Thank you for a great visit Captain Mayhem!

After taking the Red Train tour, our first visit was to the Pirate Museum. Lots of fun as they include a treasure hunt (with a 'gold coin' as a reward for success).

Great activity for kids. Particularly if they are interested in pirates. If you complete the back of your treasure map then they will give you a piece of pirate treasure

Do the treasure hunt. Great fun for the entire family. Easy on and off with the trolley. The ghost pirate may be a bit scary for the very young.

"Family visit "
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

We took our family of 5 (10 year old, 4 year old, 2 year old) late in the day. It was not busy, cooler and a great stop before dinner. The staff was nice and we got a discount from a travel book we found at our hotel, so $37 for us all (kids under 5 are free). The interactive canon sound startled my little ones but it’s only when people are doing it near you and not constant. My kids loved: the cannon, scavenger hunt, ship area and store. There’s lots of reading and some parts are scary such as the last parts with skeletons and such. My son thought it was really cool and he is not necessarily a pirate person. Lots of cool relics and historical facts to read. You can go through everything in about an hour and the shop has some really cute souvenirs, but a little pricey like most. Overall a cool place.
