Corporate and private events are welcome at the St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum.

Corporate Event

In addition to our world class museum, the property boasts a scenic outdoor courtyard and a large deck that overlooks the historic Matanzas River and the magnificent Castillo de San Marcos, the 17th Spanish fort located directly across the street on the bayfront.

The museum spans about 5,000 sq. ft. with a 1,300-sq.-ft. courtyard and an approx. 500-sq.-ft. upper deck. There are several event packages to choose from that also include museum access, with a range of costs. Our event coordinator will provide all options upon request.

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.
