  • This is a fascinating little museum well worth a visit for anyone interested in the Golden Age of Piracy. Captain "Black Sam" Bellamy's ship, the Whydah, ran into foul weather off the Wellfleet coast ...  more »
  • There is absolutely nothing from the Whydah in this museum. Before we paid for our tickets we asked if there where any pieces of the rare African gold jewelry from the Whydah; we were assured there wa...  more »
  • Nice but small. Most exhibits have printed information which take time to read but children tire of quickly. Would be better if it had interactive displays or audio accompaniments.

  • Just a tiny room. Not worth the cost at all. The best part is just a video from National Geographic that you can watch at home.
  • The pirate whydahmusem is absolutly incredible people who work there are great people barry and his team workreal hard at this and every year gets better and better as they recover more artifacts i love this place😊
  • The owner is very rude & disrectful - I am handicapped & don't see well We have a small dog that hubby & I were taking turns watching There were a few things I was trying to point out to my hubby to look at 4 me 2 make sure I had chosen correctly The owner yelled "get the dog away from here not near the door not on the doorway not near the building" We had no intentions of bringing her in tho there wasn't a soul anywhere near the place I wanted a couple of books tee shirts & trinkets prob in Excess of $100 dollars & hubby was going to take the tour first in case I was unable but with his attitude we left it all behind that's quite a chink of chane he lost I will buy elsewhere RUDENESS doesn't pay
  • This was my first time on Cape Cod and this museum was the most impressive museum on the Cape. Did you know that National Geographic did an entire special on Barry Clifford's nautical findings of the only recovered Pirate Ship in history? What's even better: Did you know that the treasure of the only recovered Pirate Ship is on display at this museum? The Whydah ship (pronounce "wi-daw") has a romantic story behind the life of the sailor Sam Bellamy who choose piracy for a profession and the woman that he met in Cape Cod and was on his way back home to when disaster struck. This museum has so many actual historical pieces recovered from the shipwrecked Whydah and from the local region that you will get a real education for such a modest fee. The proceeds of the admissions strictly go into exploration and restoration of this vessel. This was a great museum for all ages and all budgets. Truly memorable!
