The peak of the Pirate age was from the late 17th century to the early 18th century and Nassau was a major attraction for the most known pirates around the world owing to the naturally formed caves and picture perfect islands and beaches. The fact that pirates kept their gold around the city attracted many merchants and people from near and far and soon Nassau was synonymous with its reputation for being the Pirate capital. A saying goes that when a Pirate slept he did not dream about finding treasure but to come to Nassau! Paying tribute to the pirate history of the city, the Pirates of Nassau Museum offers a peak into this golden age complete with historical facts, a themed ship, a replica of the tools of torture used by the pirates while the sound of the ocean plays in the background. The tour ends at a nearby tavern where pirates welcome you for a drink!
If you are a fan of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” or simply want to escape to a world that is just as fun as mysterious, a walk into this museum is nothing like anything else- especially for children wo have grown up reading pirate stories. The highlight is the replica of the ship ‘Revenge’ where you start your tour at the deck.

Neat place. Self guided story type with some motion sensor audio and lights. Get to walk into/ through a pirate ship. Friendly staff. Inexpensive like $13. Worth it.
For history in Nassau, Pirates of Nassau museum was great! It's well maintained, which you might notice the Bahamas doesn't do too well with it's landmarks, with a fresh and modern setup. The history they provide using sound, information boards, replicas and diorama displays makes the experience enjoyable and doesn't overload you on information. Whether it's entertainment with the kids or genius interest in the pirates of the Bahamas, it's well worth checking out.
Displays and posted information excellent. True/false kept kids engaged. Gift shop carried wide variety of unique take always, including some practical items like rulers and pencils. Bathrooms in publically accessible courtyard, which was a great quieter place for a snack, breeze and shade. Make sure kids wrist bands aren't put on too tight- they are self tightening clasps.
Good place to take the kids. Not really a museum, more of a reenactment site. I would call it cheesy, but I won't because it's obvious a lot of work went into the building, but would have liked more museum type displays.
The walk through museum was very well made. I am impressed with the craftsmanship of the pirate ship, the townhomes and the mannequins. Also, the price affordable.
