  • Very authentic recreation of life on a pirate ship in the 1700s. You actually walk though the ship and a port.  more »
  • It is full, because I've gone to other places in the Caribbean where there are bad simulations, here is more interactive.

  • Mostly displays and plaques describing pirate life. Very simplistic with few actual artifacts. Cute but not worth the price of admission.  more »

  • I thought this was a great museum! So much fun to walk through, they had a lot of interesting facts as well. It was an easy walk from the port. It was an enjoyable way to spend our time in Nassau.
  • This place was really cool. A lot of effort went into the making of all the model ships and sets. Was not disappointed at all. Kids would love this place.
  • A fun little museum for the kids, though to get the most out of it requires a lot of reading (not interesting for those under 7). It's well maintained and has a nice courtyard at the end for a beverage.
  • A great museum to touch on the Golden age of Piracy. Could use a little more authentic artifacts, but I understand that they are hard to come by.
  • A self guided tour through a museum full of information on the golden age of piracy. The displays are interesting. It is certainly worth a look, especially if, say, you've harbored a lifelong fascination with the likes of Blackbeard, James Hornigold, Charles Vane, Jack Rackham, etc. The tour ends at a bar, which seems piratey enough.
