My husband and I went to this museum to learn more about the privateering and pirates. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and was very engaged. He did a great job. Would recommend.

I did enjoy the tour, but I wish they gave you more information. Also, they only talk about Black Beard very briefly.

Not the best museum in Salem. The guide showing us around appeared to treat it as a jon not a vocation. His spill was totally scripted without emotion.

Do your self a favor and skip this. 5 "pirate" scenes with approx. 20 stories of "actual" pirates. $18.00 for 2 seniors. Full price $20.00 per adult and I think $10.00 per child. For these prices the museum is the real pirate.
