Pirates Of Nassau Museum - Review
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.

Pirates Of Nassau Museum, Nassau Reviews
Excellent museum. I just happened upon this place by chance. From the main shopping street it is easy to miss but a 2 minute walk from the main road and you are there. Tells the story of Nassau's pirate past with some excellent static displays. The pirate ship and dock is very well done. Don't be put off by the outside of the building which for some reason gave me the impression of something DIY and amateurish. It is not the case and was actually the highlight of my visit to the island.
A little silly but very accurate and interesting! A lot of the exhibits are timer-based, which causes people to linger unnecessarily. Some sort of indication of what's happening and how much longer you have would make this a 5. The gift shop is obviously not great quality, but the staff was fun. Don't forget to take pictures in the courtyard!
We visited the museum today and found it not worth the cost. The walk through reminded us of a haunted house because it was so dark and with the mannequins and “sounds” of the ship and sea it was at times vaguely creepy. There were a few interesting facts but really nothing that couldn’t be found via a Google search. There were no original artifacts, which I guess shouldn’t be expected considering how pirates were viewed in their hey day and anything worth saving would’ve had to have been preserved for 300+ years. This will be informative for the non pirate enthusiast. But for those already in the know this will be a wasted 30 minutes. It is a good way to burn some time I guess if you’re looking to get out the heat. Also a tour will get you a 20% (?) discount at the restaurant next door - Smugglers.
great little place. Fun to read and imagine what life would have been like. Sound effects were fun and a welcome surprise. Lots of information to read. Not bad overall.
I didn’t like it at allá, for me totally wasted of money and it’s pricey. It was dark and silly and you have to walk though it without any guidance... So boring
