  • Informative place. We enjoyed it. Nice gift shop. We didn't know it was closing within the hour of our arrival and we didn't have the opportunity to go another day so we paid the full price admission. I've been to many places that have customer friendly reduced entrance prices the last 1.5 hours. This place did not.
  • Great place with many relics and tight spaces hard to maneuver with a stroller. Includes information on many pirates, their lives, and death sentences. A very unique and cool experience especially if you can catch a guided tour with a pirate that makes the static displays more informative and vivid-a must see. Military discounts and a very nice souvenir shop.
  • Only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because the girl at counter told us there was no restroom and my daughter had to use one.. she sent us 4 blocks away for one and after we returned and started through we found the bathroom. Otherwise this place was amazing!! Lots of relics and information!!
  • Gift shop is a little small but even despite that they have a good variety! The tour can be done guided or on your own. You get more freedom on your own. The kids loved it.
  • The owner is the real deal. He actually discovered Francis Drake's final fleet of scuttled ships! He clearly takes a ton of pride in what he does. From the special secret crossbones drawers hidden throughout the museum, to the interactive pirate encyclopedia, to the priceless and rare old memorabilia from the actual pirates- this place is a win. It took about 45 mins/an hour to get through.
