Give your child an exciting piratical birthday celebration that your budding pirate will never forget!


"We went to the Pirate and Treasure Museum and Captain Jack was also our guide; again awesome job. And Kevin the coordinator at the museum made sure everything was perfect! Moms, if your kids like pirates, you have got to have a party at the museum. Awesome! Ask for Kevin, and he takes care of everything! Thanks Kevin and Captain Jack. It will never be forgotten."
- Lori Jordan Listzwan in July 2011

Pirate Birthday

Your private pirate crew will have its own Pirate Crew Captain for a mysterious treasure hunt in search of the only pirate treasure chest left in the world.

They'll look for clues secreted away in Discovery Drawers hidden throughout the museum and they'll participate in all of the fun immersive and interactive experiences along the way.

At journey's end, each crew member will be rewarded upon discovery of the chest with a bag of booty, chock full of secret treasures and birthday treats.

Are you ready to find the riches that lie in wait?

 

"The St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum is a true Treasure! We had our son's 9th Birthday party there and it was a hit with the kids! The crew at the Pirate museum made the party easy and stress free. While Captain Mayhem kept the kids involved with this wealth of Pirate knowledge and a bit of magic. I was shocked the the museum had so many pirate artifacts, and can't wait to go back to learn more. Thank you to Kevin and his team at the St. Augustine Pirate Museum."

Did you know?

  • Pirates thought that having women on board their ship was bad luck.  It's why pirate femmes like Mary Read initially lived a life of piracy as men!

  • Most pirates stole their ships because they couldn't afford them.  Once they'd capture a ship, they'd convert it for pirate life by making more room for sailor living quarters and strengthening the decks to hold heavy cannons.

  • The difference between a pirate and a privateer is that privateers are sanctioned by respective governments and they don't attack ships from their own country. Pirates harass anyone passing by.

  • A galleon ship was armed to the teeth. It typically carried 74 guns, 36 of which were mounted on either side of the ship. The two guns were mounted aft.
