  • 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😊
  • Nothing too exciting.

  • 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!
