  • Very cool museum to check out on a rainy or hot day. The staff are professional and full of stories! It's a great family event to swing by after lunch (for only 5$/person).
  • This is an awesome place, recovered sunken treasure artifacts from the old Spanish main! Speak to real treasure salvors who have actually found treasure artifacts and have it on display!
  • So exciting to see all the treasures left behind and learn about how much history is involved in this area! It's a small museum however your mind can really drift as if you once lived a past life while looking at all the cool items, reading about it and even watching some of the movies playing while taking this little tour. Honestly, I always thought Pirates were mythical or something from a story book but visiting this place had me capture the reality of the Pirates that once lived. Love this place !
  • A bit pricy for a 10 minute walk through practically nothing.
  • Nice place. Looks newer and like they're still adding some things. Very good information and artifacts for island.
