Took our two boys who enjoyed it, especially the canons! They got a lot more interested once they did the treasure hunt!

I personally liked it and my 6 y/o loved it. They give you a map that's also a treasure hunt. The price is a small chocolate, but it was the fun of finding the items.

Many have given great reviews, and this IS a very good exhibit, but I found it average when compared to the other local sites. Don't get me wrong, it's good, I just don't want to oversell it.

If you like pirate adventures or Pirates of The Caribbean you will enjoy this museum you can fire a digital cannon and a lot of hands on material. The kids would really enjoy this attraction

It's a fine museum, but ridiculously priced for what you get. They have a treasure map for kids, which was good for kids. I just don't think it was worth $30 for my husband and I to go through such a small place that doesn't take that long to go through even if you stopped to read everything. A lot... More

We read other Trip Advisor reviews that said that it was worth a visit and I agree. it's not just a cheesy pirate tourist trap. The owner's passion for diving and salvage came through in the tasteful and informative displays. There's a great deal of attention to interactive displays for children and adults for learning. I loved the idea of... More

I thought this was over rated and expected more for the money. It was nice to see a real treasure chest and some gold and silver coins and some history but I expected a lot more. Good for kids
