  • A little silly but very accurate and interesting! A lot of the exhibits are timer-based, which causes people to linger unnecessarily. Some sort of indication of what's happening and how much longer you have would make this a 5. The gift shop is obviously not great quality, but the staff was fun. Don't forget to take pictures in the courtyard!
  • great little place. Fun to read and imagine what life would have been like. Sound effects were fun and a welcome surprise. Lots of information to read. Not bad overall.
  • What a wonderful experience. There is so much junk in Nassau that it's nice to finally see something done well. The Pirates exhibit was very well done. Plenty to see and read, the recreations were very well done. There was tons of fascinating information and great scenes to look at. It was well worth coming to this great exhibit.
  • I know this place is very touristy but it also is pretty amazing even though it's self-guided tour and there's a lot of reading. The history to this place and the displays the way they have them set up transport you into the 1700s during the time of the Pirates I highly recommend this place if you like history and fun.
  • This was not one of those big production museums where you can spend hours and hours. But they had several exhibits that were quite interesting and the staff was very courteous and friendly. So all in all it was good for an hour or two diversion.
