Wasn't too sure about paying the entry fee because I wasn't sure what to expect. Well it was worth it, the tour guide was very entertaining all while being very knowledgeable. Learned a lot about pirates and the lives they led.More

My family had to see the Pirate Museum! The kids received a map to find clues and at the end received a little treasure! Lots of fun.

If I remember correctly it was not long, you can do the tour which was maybe a half hour maybe 45min, but well worth the tour. Or you can just go look through the museum on your own!
