If there's one thing out there that's cooler than pirates, it's museums. But only if they're about pirates. So hoist ye main sails...on your Taurus...and get to the St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum.
Now open in Florida's oldest city after a six-year stint in Key West, the AP&TM was started by privateer enthusiast Pat Croce, who's most known for being
deemed awesome enough to be commissioner of Slamball president of the 76ers, and who just moved his booty into this larger space that just happens to be steps away from where legit swashbuckling action went down in the 16th and 17thCs. Nine exhibits (from "Captain's Cabin" to "Shipwreck Treasure") house upwards of 800 timber-shivering goods including everything from one of only two existing authentic vintage Jolly Roger flags, to historical stuff recovered from a Florida coast shipwreck like 18thC grenades and actual treasure chests, to one of the only surviving wanted posters offering a 500lb reward for the capture of a notorious "Arch-Pirate", who was from St. Louis, or stole mad Dr. Scholls, or something. They've also got a Gun Deck where you can blow stuff up electrically light a Dutch East India Company cannon from 1753 to simulate its recoil, plus a touch-screen map featuring 16 hotspots where well-hatted marauders lived, sailed, and plundered during the "Golden Age of Piracy", which's approximately when you downloaded "Gin & Juice" by Phish on Napster.
For those who don't get starstruck by simply Blackbeard alone, things also get Hollywood with props like Captain Jack Sparrow's sword, Errol Flynn's jacket from the swashbuckling tale Captain Blood, and Captain Hook's hook from Peter Pan, because once you add Disney to museums and pirates, it's only a matter of time before you blow Rufio off the joint.
