  • The items found on this sunken pirate ship from the early 18th century are quite impressive. This is professionally documented and displayed and provides quite the story from 1718. There is context...

  • If your into history, shipwrecks, fortune hunting, this is a cool place. More to it than just pirates. Worth a stop.

  • If you're looking for a Disney Experience, take your utterly clueless self to Disneyland. This is a genuine historic nautical Museum (rated by New York Times as one of the top ten museums in America). So if you don't like the place then you have to ask what's wrong with you. I love that it is relatively dark, and a bit gritty grimy like a decaying shipwreck at the bottom of the sea, exactly the way it should be! This is an exhibit of hundreds of pieces of genuine authentic artifacts and treasures recovered from the only fully authenticated golden age pirate shipwreck ever discovered on planet Earth. The museum and collection is privately owned, and it is an absolute privilege that the owner should allow any of us to even see a single piece of this amazing find. They do have a second Museum in Yarmouth for people who like the Disney-ish atmosphere and are not mature enough to appreciate the scientific aspect of their discovery.
  • Interesting museum about a sunken pirate ship. Teacher get in for a discount. We visited while waiting for half our group to come back from private whale watching
