The museum is definitely worth visiting. Admission is free, but you are free to give a donation, which should be done to help keep it open. There were artifacts and historical accounts about Blackbeard’s Queen Anne’s Revenge, in addition to many interesting historical maritime exhibits.

We stopped in here for the artifacts of Edward Teach's Queen Anne's Revenge. On the way home to Toronto Canada from Myrtle Beach. It was free admission, donations were welcomed (we did it was worth it) The exhibit was great it was better then I thought it would be. I am a fan of the Age of Sail, and well Pirate Lore. So I had a good time. To be honest we did not look at any of the other exhibits When we were there in Feb 2017 they were talking about a big expansion they had in the works for more of the QAR artifacts. We are hoping to go back again sometime after the renovation and new artifacts are on display

Go! Do not hesitate. This is the only chance to see the Queen Anne's Revenge relics with your own eyes. The entire museum is good but the QAR exhibit is a view into the past world. However, the gift shop is useless. They should do a much better job of having far more things related to sail sips and pirates. One thing I often notice in museums and this one is the same...parents take their small and preteen kids. Children do not understand what they are seeing and just want to play on the beach. They will reach the age of 19 and will tell a friend that they went to this museum as a kid but do not remember anything. Save yourself the trouble. Let the kids play on the beach and let the adults experience the museum. It will allow you a better experience and likely also allow other guests to actually enjoy the experience in peace.
