  • We didn't actually see much of the museum as they have wax figures and my kids are scared of them. However the staff was friendly and the gift shop prices were reasonable.
  • Poor assortiment of real exebits. Most of exebits are poor quality figures of pirates.
  • Delightful tour of piracy of both famous and local pirates. Worth the price of admission.
  • A historical museum focused upon piracy (And New England Piracy at that) and Salems early history.
  • Interesting guided tour, allows flash photography and has a friendly staff.
