Pirates of Nassau
Nassau's rich pirate history is remembered at this popular downtown attraction. It takes up nearly a whole block, just off the main shopping drag. Visitors tour a full-scale pirate ship, a dungeon and a cheerily debauched pirate community. If you wish to make an evening of your tour, buffet dinners or formal entertainment can be arranged. A relaxed patio bar is located just outside the main attraction. The gift shop, an attraction in its own right, can be accessed from the street.
We were in the Bahamas about 3 years ago and took in this tour. Even though we were part of a huge cruise ship and there were other cruises in port this attraction was fairly empty. We stumbled across it by accident just walking around Nassau and my husband and I both loved it.
The exhibits were interesting and informative. It seemed the whole place was well kept up and carefully maintained.
I don't remember what the cost was, but we're hoping to be back in Nassau later this year and can't wait to go back to the Pirate Museum!
We loved Pirates of Nassau, the guy that greeted you was a blast we spent so much time with him, he posed and posed with us, I sure he spent 45 minutes with us making pictures and the museum was interesting, I loved bring pictures home to my grandson, who is a Pirate! we were there in January of 2005, I really enjoyed it
We went during the week around 2:00 and it was empty, so no lines. We took our time on the self guided tour. There are many postings to read and a few audio areas, but most of it you need to discover on your own. You can take pictures and the restrooms were very clean.
We had a guide part of the time and was on our own the rest of the time. Our guide was interesting and fun. After the tour, he came outside and offered to take fun pictures with him. We didn't know there were famous female pirates, so now I am interested in their stories and have bought a book to learn more.
I thought that the tour was alot of fun and well worth the $12. Our guide, dressed in pirate attire, was enthusiastic, informative and quite entertaining! He even encouraged everyone to take fun pictures with him after the tour. The gift shop was loaded with pirate booty and the bar looked like a fun hang-out, although I did not do so myself.
