  • The place was an old aquarium so it doesn't look attractive on the outside, but once you enter it's very well placed. It is the resign of the belonging of a sunken pirate ship, where among other things there is a real treasure with hundreds of silver coins. and a lot of information about the life and organization of pirates in the world. The most impressive thing is that at the end of the tour is the laboratory where, if you are lucky, there is someone, among them some of the divers, who are doing work to extract from the mass made by the effects of the environment, the pieces, there found. If you are a teacher or student with a credential, you pay half.

  • A real gem for history and/or pirate buffs. Kids and adults will both find this museum interesting. The exhibits are amazing and having the shipwreck site right off the Cape makes this even more interesting. Layout is great, lots of great content to go with exhibits and staff is friend. Great excursion and fun way to kill a couple of hours on a rainy Cape Cod day.
  • Great for adults and pirate loving children. If you are into history and read every detail give yourself several hours as there is a lot to take in. This is a well done museum for a local spot. Amazing artifacts to view. I saw this when it was traveling several years ago at the Philly art museum and I was happy to see it again, great take!
