You learn a lot about the different pirates of the Caribbean and some local history. The museum is in the same building that the guy that was supposed to hunt down all the pirates stayed.

So much better than being bombarded by trinket and gem sellers in the port of call. This museum gives you a great idea of the Pirates that roamed the seas and what their lifestyles consisted of. Originally didn't care to go, but glad we did

If you need to escape the rain or heat and have already seen everything else Nassau has to offer, this is the place to go. No tour guide, just walk through by yourself. There's a ship to walk through and lots of plaques on the walls to read about pirates.

Very informative and well built, it gives you an idea of how Captain Sparrow was living ( when he was sailing).... As the museum is in the middle of Downtown, it is definitely worth a visit.

Went there on a very sunny day and it was nice to get out of the sun for a while. We walked there from the harbour. they seem to be renovating parts of the exhibition.

From North Carolina there is a lot of history on Black Beard, but he ventured out to the Bahama's too. For a Pirate historian, casual visitor, or family with children the museum is worth the visit. They have some interactive displays and artifacts that relives the past well.
