As its name suggests, the St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum displays a variety of pirate artifacts, including the world's oldest "Wanted" poster, the world's only pirate treasure chest, and one of two surviving 17th-century Jolly Roger flags (that familiar black flag featuring a skull and crossbones). At the center of the museum, travelers can climb aboard a replica pirate ship with a helm and cannons.
Recent museumgoers raved about the attraction. Must-do activities include taking a free guided tour with Captain Mayhem (the museum's resident pirate and tour guide) and searching for the museum's hidden treasure clues.
