The St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum is a unique collection of authentic pirate artifacts coupled with elements of interactive technology that reveal a scintillating historic adventure through the Golden Age of Piracy and the lives of the era’s most infamous pirates.

Among more than 800 museum-quality artifacts, threaded through the storyline is the original journal of Captain Kidd’s last voyage, the only authentic pirate treasure chest in the world that originally belonged to Captain Thomas Tew, and the oldest pirate Wanted Poster for the capture of Captain Henry Every.
Thomas Tew’s Chest
The world’s only surviving pirate treasure chest. This 400-year old wrought iron chest was owned by Thomas Tew, one of the richest pirates in the Golden Age of Piracy. Tew carried his plunder from the Arabian Sea to Rhode Island in this very chest in 1694.
Fire a Cannon
Fire a real cannon on the gun deck! Be sure to make your way through the doors marked “Enter If You Dare!” to experience the “3-D Audio” show of “Blackbeard’s Final Battle!”
