Though housed in a fairly small space, this museum has a great collection of pirate-related artifacts. The exhibits are well interpreted and interactive. It can be enjoyed by both adults and children. I highly recommend taking the time to see what's inside.More

Nice museum with interesting genuine artifacts. Educational without being boring. Perfect for a quick tour that won’t devour your entire day. We completed the tour in about 30 minutes. Even our teen daughter enjoyed the museum.More

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!
