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.

What a great little place, the history of pirates and St. Augustine. The kids will love this place, they will learn the history of Black Beard and see just what a private ship would have looked like and the different chambers in the ship. I you get a chance to visit, make sure you check out the little rooms that provide a little show, the kids will get a kick out of it. It is a small little attraction, but will worth seeing.

This is a must see while in the Ancient City. The museum contains many unique, rare and one of-a-kind relics from the days of the pirates of the high seas. In addition to viewing the tools of the trade, you get a flavor or the pirate’s life with the many interactive exhibits. It’s great for children – they provide a treasure map and the children have to locate the treasures throughout the museum. Upon completion, they are an honorary pirate. 2/4/20

The museum self guided tour took us an hour and twenty minutes and was time well spent. The tour included many stations and display cases of weapons,salvaged treasure, and pirate artifacts, including one of only 3 existing "jolly roger" pirate flags in the world. A replica gun deck of a pirate ship provided the visitor with a glimpse of pirate life. One station had a digital book that described the lives and deaths of many infamous pirates such as Blackbeard, Henry Morgan, Black Bart, Stede Bonnet, Anne Bonney, and Capt. Kidd. One of the artifacts displayed was Captain Kidd's engraved treasure chest! You have the opportunity to pick up a salvaged gold bar as well. If you are a senior,you get in for $12.99. Very enjoyable!

It's fun to learn about things that are not part of your everyday life. This museum was fun and informative and clearly worth an hour or so. Nice staff.
