My first tourist trap was this place, second was Fountain of Youth. This may be great for teenagers, but my daughter who happens to be 11, thought it was stupid and very small for a museum. I wasn't impressed either and the cost of entry is not worth it. This place could easily be skipped, so skip it.

Location: The museum is easily accessible. It is right across the road from a large area of public parking ($1.50/hr). Traffic light to let you cross the road on foot is pushbutton initiated. If you are on St. George street a couple of side streets lead to the museum. I was a little reluctant to visit when I read on... More

We really enjoyed our visit to the museum. It was really well laid out and had very cool artifacts. My son's favorites were the cannons that were modified to "shoot" and the audio experience (by Disney!) of a battle with Blackbeard. They have a "treasure hunt" for kids where kids look for clues and get "booty" at the end of... More

Fun tour with Captain Mayhem....he made the visit extremely enjoyable. Advice...you should visit. The location is perfect. Easy to get it, get out and have lunch or dinner. Search around for an easy couple dollars off admission too.

Better for small children, teenagers not so good. It was small and fast, not much history or real events to reference but it had some cool artifacts.

I was expecting this to be child-orientated and was pleasantly surprised by the amount of exhibits aimed at adults. Great for all ages.

Really enjoyed seeing all the pirate memobilia and history. Didn't think it would be enjoyable at first but was very pleased once inside. Pricing was quite reasonable. I would recommend to friends going to St Augustine . Fun activities as well as a treasure hunt to do once inside - kids should like this.

What a fun place was with my granddaughter and she wanted to stay all day. A pirates life was interesting and not as exciting as we thought. Great history lesson again in a great city

You might think this museum is only for kids and it is really interesting for them. But it is also really informative for adults as well.
