Arrrgghhh, A Pirate Museum walks the plank in Florida!

The Pirate & Treasure Museum is back open in Florida.  After a complete rehab, it re-opened in St. Augustine after moving from Key West.  Pat Croce, the former owner of the Philadelphia 76ers, is both the owner of the museum and a pirate fanatic like myself, arrrggghhhh.

It had been in Key West since 2004 but Croce decided it'd get better traffic up in St. Augustine, the "Nation's Oldest City!"   Tours of the museum cost around $12 for adults and $7 for children and the hours are set to be 9am to 6pm.

The museum features rooms filled with original pirate artifacts, interactive movies and sounds, treasure hunts and games.  Among the other things to do here, visitors can fire the cannons on the ship's deck and see one of the last original treasure chests used by pirate.
