Teach's Hole Blackbeard Exhibit is a unique attraction devoted to all things "piratical." Since 1992, the exhibit and its pirate specialty shop have been a favorite destination for families visiting Ocracoke Island. The exhibit features a life-like recreation of Blackbeard, a weapons display, old bottles, original art, a pirate flag display, ship models, and interactive activities. As visitors leave the exhibit, they enter a one of a kind pirate specialty shop. Kids of all ages will enjoy Teach’s Hole!

The museum tells the story of Edward Teach, aka Blackbeard. There are good displays, and informative audible exhibits. A must for a pirate enthusiast!

Neat place to visit for 15-20 minutes. Quick walk through the exhibit and then walk through the gift shop. Unfortunately there were a bunch of kids in there being loud so it was hard to concentrate on reading some of the exhibits.

At $4 each for a 20 foot walk, this is only for the little kiddies. The gift shop had lots of pirate stuff, if you're into that. I wouldn't really bother with this one unless the kids were totally bored.

It was a quick and inexpensive place to see the highlights of Blackbeard's life. There were a few video's, some art work, and facts about his life along with some period pieces.

A little bit touristy but the museum is interesting and I learned quite a bit about Blackbird and other pirates. I was hesitant to visit, but glad I did!

We were staying in Radanthe. I'm not sure I would take the 45 minute ferry ride over just to see this museum. It was interesting. And if you have good luck, you might be able to see the wild mustang herd a couple of miles...More

The Blackbeard Museum on Ocracoke was a fast, interesting attraction to visit. The owners have numerous artifacts and artistic depictions of Blackbeard / William Teach in numerous artistic media. The exhibit gives one a good idea of who Blackbeard was.
