Thought it would be over the top and kitschy - but actually not bad. Provided a very informative overview of pirate activity in and around the Florida and Caribbean Sea area. A small but comprehensive display of artifacts and associated pirate `stuff' - well laid...More

Well worth the price of admission. Great interactive exhibits. Historical aspects are right on. Treasure hunt makes you really look at things and help you learn —- even if you don’t realize it at the time.

If I remember correctly it was not long, you can do the tour which was maybe a half hour maybe 45min, but well worth the tour. Or you can just go look through the museum on your own!
