It was a quick and inexpensive place to see the highlights of Blackbeard's life. There were a few video's, some art work, and facts about his life along with some period pieces.

A little bit touristy but the museum is interesting and I learned quite a bit about Blackbird and other pirates. I was hesitant to visit, but glad I did!

The Blackbeard Museum on Ocracoke was a fast, interesting attraction to visit. The owners have numerous artifacts and artistic depictions of Blackbeard / William Teach in numerous artistic media. The exhibit gives one a good idea of who Blackbeard was.

The museum is interesting and well-done. The staff is helpful in providing directions and recommendations about hotels, restaurants, and things to do. The lady working there that day even suggested having our picture taken in front of Blackbeard... with eye patches. And she let us...More
