St Augustine Pirate and Treasure Museum two hooks up! The official opening of this museum in Florida doesn't occur until December the 8th while Pat and his Buckos complete some small details in order to get it shipshape by opening day, but we were fortunate to have a sneak peak during a reception on Friday. We successfully avoided being three sheets to the wind and enjoyed this highly entertaining and educational experience.
We were plesantly surprised at the quality of this Florida attraction not only for the authentic historical pieces including an actual pirate treasure chest, real Jolly Roger pirate flag and captain's log books; but also by the interactive experience that immerses you into the world of pirates. Blimey! and a big Yo Ho Ho for a job well done. Don't miss the opportunity to go below deck for the surround sound effects created for a lively experience with pirates. Old Salts and lassies alike will take great joy in this experience. We are already planning our return visit to this St. Augustine attraction and if you are traveling in Florida, we can highly recommend this Florida museum for things to see and do.
The St. Augustine Pirate and Treasure Museum is located directly across the street from the Castillo de San Marco and right next the St Augustine Colonial Spanish Quarter. Open everyday from 9 - 6 p.m., closed on Christmas Day. You should be Keelhauled for not staying in St. Augustine. Carriage Way Bed and Breakfast is the better way to stay for your St. Augustine Florida getaway.
