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.

Educational but the kids don't know it! Well known treasure hunters put their collective pirate knowledge and trinkets on display in this privately run business. Follow the signs and the kids had a blast. Enjoyed it. About a 45 min experience and you enter/exit in the gift shop, of course.

We were two adults acting like a couple of kids in this fun museum! Lots of interesting historical information as well as the “treasure hunt” for a bit of pirate booty at the end! Very well done and great for all ages. The gift shop is excellent as well!

If you like history and have any interest in pirates this is the place for you. The museum is small, but very well laid out. The information is extensive and worth taking the time to read all the placards. There are interactive bits that are very well done. There are many real artifacts to marvel at, especially the only known true pirate treasure chest. There is a “treasure hunt” designed for the kids that even us adults enjoyed. We had no children with us and we all still thoroughly enjoyed this museum. Highly recommend.

"Completely Surprised"

I took a weekend trip out just to get away since I haven’t been able to travel far and decided to see the places I always walked by. I always thought the Pirate & Treasure Museum would be corny and a tourist trap. I was very wrong. It is a quality, professional museum with an exceptional collection of artifacts designed and layed out in atmospheric displays. Each room has a theme or storyline that relates to piracy and the whole experience is very educational. I was extremely impressed by the museum and will be taking others on a future trip. The staff was also very polite and friendly. A great experience for anyone interested in piracy, maritime history or the history of the area.
