Visit the St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum
The St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum is a museum dedicated to pirate artifacts.
Formerly known as the Pirate Soul Museum, the museum was located at 524 Front Street, Key West, Florida, United States. It was announced in February 2010 that the museum was being moved to St Augustine, Florida. It reopened there on December 8, 2010 as the St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum.
Your immersive journey through the Golden Age of Piracy at the St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum begins on the cobblestoned streets of Port Royal, Jamaica, the 17th century pirate stronghold.
From there, you'll step in Rogues Tavern where St. Augustine pirates and other famous sea rogues imbibed and fought. Stimulate your senses when you board the Main Deck in the midst of battle before stepping onto the Gun Deck where you can fire a real cannon.
Become immersed in the Below Deck sound chamber for Blackbeard's final battle and demise. And don't forget the Captain's Cabin where one of only two Jolly Roger flags and the journal of Captain Kidd's final voyage before execution have found final rest.
Step onto the Execution Dock for macabre displays of pirate punishment and torture before venturing into Shipwreck Island filled with real pirate treasure. End your journey in Hollywood Pirates with pirate movie paraphernalia like Captain Barbossa's silver flintlock pistol and Jack Sparrow's sword.
