“Interesting for adults to learn, kids feel like they're on a pirate ship”

Pirates! Legends of the Gulf Coast
Ranked #25 of 77 Tours in Galveston
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 August 2013

This is a small museum, great place to take pictures. If you have the time, as an adult, I loved the historical information provided throughout. If you're with little ones, you'll have to move quickly & perhaps not have time to read the information beautifully displayed within the exhibit...however, the ship-like feel of the museum is very believable for tots who are into pirates. Fun, but not scary. "Moving" water, lights, bridges, pirate statues, etc. Our hostess, Shelby was delightful. This won't take much time out of your day, fun for ages 2+ & if you're interested in pirate history, adults might want to come back without the tots, in order to take the time to read all of the historical documents.

For the price you are being robbed. Last for maybe 10 minutes. My 6 year old loves pirates but was very disappointed. I feel it was a waste of money and time.

We took a trip into Galveston Today. We just moved to Texas in Jan so we are pretty new to the area. We did some shopping on the Strand and came across the Pirates Museum. The kids loved the decorations and the artifacts and enjoyed the scavenger hunt. We learned a lot about the Pirates of Galveston Island and even got an awesome cut out of Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) in a dedicated room to Hollywood! We had a good time.

This place was okay, the recreation of the ship was very nice. Don't expect it to kill much time though, we were in and out in less than a half hour! The scavenger hunt was fantastic!

The Pirate Museum is located on the strand. It is attached to the Haunted Mayfield Manor. The fee is not bad. The exhibit is good. When you walk in you are on the deck of a ship. There is a cabin set up with a window that makes you feel like you are on a ship. It isn't a large museum but it was worth the cost. Make sure you check it out.
