We walked a mile or more to get to this and we’re a bit disappointed. It had potential but in its current format was a bit cheesy. It was ok but not really worth $16 each.

My family of five stopped here for part of the day. It was a remarkably clean museum with a very easy layout. My kids enjoyed themselves, and I learned some things. My only hangup preventing me from giving it a 5 is that the price was a bit steep for the content and time commitment. Still, it was fun.

If you like pirates this museum is full of interesting facts, traditions, Pirate practices, ships, legends, etc. They have a hurricane simulator which is cool. They showed a great informative movie before your self guided tour. The museum is 2 stories and can be completed in 1 hour. The gift shop had awesome authentic treasures to purchase.

Nice partially interactive museum. When going spend the money and get the sky ride also. It has amazing views. Spend time to read and enjoy when you come.

Best value, education, and AC on the island. Plan on 1.5 hours minimum. You will not be disappointed!! No need to write more as I’d repeat so many others reviews.

Info on many different Pirates thru the ages, shipwrecks, and bounty - lots to see. Better than expected. 1- 1/2 hr if you read the info. Staff were well informed and friendly.

Concise Review

“The Best Thing We Did on the Trip”

-----

Longer Review

We visited St. Thomas, USVI, for the first time in 2021, and had a great time. The trip was, in large part, to celebrate our son and his friend graduating high school and being ready for college in the fall.

We asked the boys to pick something to do and they both picked visiting Pirate Treasure - A Shipwreck Museum. I’ll admit… 1) I’m unsure I would have picked this visit, and 2) that’s a benefit of family… doing things someone else picks, and enjoying something new that you otherwise would not have gotten to do on your own… - -> because 3) Pirate Treasure was great fun!

You learn and experience so much at Pirate Treasure - A Shipwreck Museum!

They have a history of the Virgin Islands and of pirates, the good and the not-so-good… the not-so-good including keel-hauling, marooning, walking the plank, and more. Biographies of several pirates, including the pirate who inspired Dred Pirate Roberts in “The Princess Bride,” Women Pirates, and even Jewish Pirates.

They have the history of the steamship Republic, a steamboat with paddle wheels on each side, which sunk shortly after the Civil War. A veteran who served at Gettysburg was on the ship, and they have a letter from the soldier to his wife describing the terrible sinking. 51,000 coins were lost when the Republic sunk and a remote submersible brought up the coins, one-by-one. Pirate Treasure has a version of the remote submersible, one that you can control to pick up some quarters - it’s fun,y and not as easy as it may sound… a good challenge.

We also learned that the US almost purchased the Virgin Islands sooner, in the late 1800s, but an earthquake and two tsunamis delayed that; then WWI spurred the purchase; the Virgins have been part of the US since 1918.

We learned that Jesuit priest Father Benito Vines, based in Havana, Cuba, was the first person to forecast a hurricane, in 1857… based on his own weather measurements of barometric pressure, wind speed, etc.

This is definitely a great place to visit, and the boys’ favorite thing we did when out-and-about on St. Thomas.

Outside, as we departed, our daughter captured macro photos of flowers in a pot outside the door - great fun with photography.

Thank you, Pirate Treasure - A Shipwreck Museum!!

We had heard about this place from another couple staying on the island. We went to check it out. It has alot of history of the wreaks around the area and has treasures that have been found there. Definitely worth checking out if you like that kind of stuff. The guy who runs it is very nice and will answer any questions you have.
