Seafarer’s Report – One Family’s Visit To The Museum


At the St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum, we are always happy to hear from visitors after their time with us. Below, a Grandmother tells us of a trip to the museum with her Pirate Fan Grandson:

“A child couldn’t  be any more excited to see a Pirate than my grandson  this past Saturday.


I would like to thank William Mayhem for his amazing ability to connect with children the way that he does – and honestly, for bringing out the child in us all!  What a talented man, and an amazing entertainer.  My grandson kept thanking me over and over after his meeting and cannot wait to see the Captain again one day.


It was Pirate Gathering weekend in St Augustine, an added bonus after such a wonderful time at the Museum.  My grandson clasped his hands behind his back as he walked down St. George Street telling everyone to move out of the way because a “Captain” was coming thru,  just like Mayhem taught him.

Three such men were quite amused and my grandson wanted a picture with them.

Thank you again, and many thanks to William Mayhem for making my grandson an extremely happy little boy.  Know that my grandson thinks that “Mayhem Rocks!”

Many Blessings,

‘Gammy’ to St Augustine’s Tiniest Pirate!”
