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.

While we didn't know whether this would be hokey, we were pleasantly surprised at how much we really enjoyed this museum. It's not big, but there's still plenty to see. They have one of the largest collections of rare pirate artifacts in the world. They also have the "only authentic pirate treasure chest in the world." This museum has been featured on the Today Show, CNN, History Channel, & Antiques Roadshow. Suggestion: As this museum is located near the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument, if you think you'd have the energy, you may want to see both in the same day... We did. Lastly, as there are 1 or 2 displays which might frighten a young child, you may consider not taking a preschooler here...

My wife and I visited the museum yesterday after visiting the fort, which we also recommend. Started our self guided tour when William, a gentleman dressed head to toe in what looked like authentic pirate gear addressed the crowd and offered a walking tour. William gaves us all kinds of interesting facts, anecdotes and his personal beliefs regarding all things pirate. He was great! After the tour we wandered around on our own. All told we spent about 2 hours there. It’s not very big, but it’s full of interesting artifacts. Pat Croce, the owner, is passionate about the history of pirates and it shows in the details. All told, we had a great time at a very affordable price and would highly recommend it. Aarghhh!!!

My fiancé and I enjoyed our time at the pirate museum. They have a treasure hunt that is meant for kids but is a cute little fun thing. Keeping your eyes open to the attractions. I def recommend the audio portion about black beard it was fun. The tour guides were informative and entertaining.

My husband and I took my 3 year old daughter to see this. She was probably too young to appreciate it so we will have to go back. It was very interactive which I thought was cool. You got a type of scavenger hunt so you could search for things and get a prize at the end. It took maybe 45 mins to go through the whole museum.
