My daughter went with her grandparents and cousin--both kids age 7. The kiddos loved it and couldn't stop talking about it. They loved the little 'treasure' hunt they did and both received a cool coin for finding all the relics. They even watched quite a bit of the documentary and enjoyed it. My parents both loved it as well. Highly recommend!
This museum was the best we went to in this area. Corey is a wonderful asset to the museum. He was so knowledgeable and even took us out to the boardwalk/ship to show my Mom and I exactly where the crew started finding treasure. Highly recommend this on your stop if you have a couple of hours to kill and want to learn about the culture rich history.
