Pirate Soul Museum

Arrr! The most authentic collection of pirate artifacts in the world... matey  

Edit Place

Founded by famed entrepreneur Pat Croce, the Pirate Soul Museum is the largest and most authentic collection of pirate artifacts in the world.

With 48 individual exhibit areas, the museum includes such ill-gotten booty as pieces of gold retrieved from his warship the Queen Anne's Revenge, Blackbeard's blunderbuss, one of only two remaining authentic Jolly Roger flags, and Thomas Tew's original treasure chest, the only known authentic pirate treasure chest in the world.

Exhibits include pirate weapons, treasure, information on each buccaneer's life, and writing and art depicting these feared fortune-hunters.

The museum was closed in 2012 and moved to St. Augustine.
