A whole museum devoted to pirates sounds like a child’s wish come true. And it’s not just kids, many adults too are fascinated by pirates and the connection with the idea of buried treasure. Cindy Stavely, Executive Director of the St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum says “We believe people are interested in the idea and history of pirates because it allows a look back in time to the explorers whom set out for adventure to discover the lands that we roam today. Also, everyone loves the idea of finding treasure, be it earned or discovered. The idea of “easy riches” appeals to most everyone, although we tell the true facts in the museum, that these discoveries were indeed hard to come by, through work, blood, sweat, and tears.”
