We probably wouldn't have bothered with the "Pirate" museum but were urged to go by our hosts. It's actually the story of a search for a shipwrecked vessel and the eventual discovery of a number of artefacts from the wreck. We found it fascinationg .

The museum consists of 3 rooms, that even reading all the inscriptions, only takes 20 to 30 minutes to walk through. My wife and I and our 2 boys, both fans of pirates were not impressed and found it rather dull. We were really disappointed.

Not a bad way to spend 45 minutes on a rainy day in Ptown! A lot of reading, but also some hands son stuff for the kids.

Barry Clifford found Sam Bellamy's ship at Marconi Beach and some of the relics are here. The museum is small and focused, but there is enough to stoke a child's imagination. Perfect rainy day activity.

Hi there - If my memory serves me I believe the cost is $12.00 per adult and less for children. We didn't have any children with us but it might be $5.00 or $8.00. It opens at 10:00 a.m and closes at 5:00 p.m. I hope that... More
