  • Very awesome! Lots of things to do and really fun! The tour guide pirate Mr. Mayhem was very informative and super fun as well as a great friendly guy to talk to, will definitely be back to enjoy this tour again and see all of the real pirate stuff and treasures and earnings and especially the Hollywood room, some cool things in there as well! Definitely a place to see in person! Thank you again Commodore Mayhem!
  • I went here last year on my birthday trip to FL and was NOT disappointed. It was worth every penny, from the friendly staff to the awesome exhibits. Its a very fun and informative self guided tour with a special activity for children to do throughout the museum. The gift shop offers a huge selection of pirate and St Augustine themed gifts for all ages. I recommend this place to anyone interested in pirates or anyone looking for a fun time.
  • We live locally and went there with our family of six. We had a great time. The exhibits are very informative and were created with class. The staff was kind and pleasant. It was a very cool educational experience for the adults and kids in our family. We will definitely return. We bought the combo pack for the Colonial experience as well. I would skip that next time. The two experiences are wildly different and do not match in terms of quality.
  • Everyone should give this place a chance. I wasn’t sure of it at first but I’m glad I didn’t skip over this place. It’s fun and interactive and full of legit history of pirates. The quality of each exhibit is really great for being a small museum too! From the wax pirates scattered throughout, to the interior decoration. There’s even an animatronic talking head of black beard, which I thought was really cool & well done. Bravo to whoever was in charge of the interior designing and prop making.
  • Logged in especially to rate this place 5 stars. Amazing and very unique attraction with real pirate chests, pirate loot and as close as you can get to experience the real pirate life of old. Would have stayed for another hour devouring all the information about famous pirates and hideouts if it wasn't for my impatient young kids. A must for history lovers, pirate lovers, more suitable for teens and above although younger kids would also enjoy.
