Small museum with a variety of exhibits better suited for children. There are some interactive activities for them. We visited on a weekday and they had a tour group of kids. Luckily we were ahead of them so we were able to move through at...More

The "self-guided" tour could have been good and entertaining, however when you make time for Captain Mayhem's (free) assistance, you end up with a gem of a result. He was in character, experienced, knowledgeable and just plain enjoyable. Touring the museum without assistance could be...More

Over priced, over rated and over crowded. Pretty corny, and not worth the time or money. There are many other attractions where you could better spend your time and money.

The tour guide was phenomenal! One of the best guides we've ever had. And we've been on tons of tours.

Had a tour with Captain Mayhem. He's interesting, funny, and a great guide. Interesting authentic pirate stuff.

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the artifacts in the museum. In some places, this type of museum might be viewed as a little less than serious. That is not the case here - a big collection of real, relevant pieces for the...More

We went in expecting "kitchy" and were pleasantly surprised! Tressure hunters Croce and Fisher have combined entertainment with real pirate memorabilia including gold bars, ship logs, guns, and other treasures to create a one- of- a- kind experience. Children and adults will enjoy this. We...More

How long should I expect to be there?

Response from Wanderlust_Scribe | Reviewed this property |
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!
This may be a dumb question, but are pets allowed? I have an ESA (canine) that is under 15 lbs, is quiet, and can be in a bag/carrier the entire time.
