Pirates in the Keys, Arggghh!

by Terri | June 2nd, 2011

Whether you are a big kid or you want to take your kids, I have to tell you about a great place to go when you are in Key West. It is called the Pirate Soul, a museum that claims to have the largest collection of Pirate artifacts on display. With the interactive technology of today, this is much more than a museum, it is an adventure with touch and audio-animatronics almost like you see in a theme park.

You can go above deck and below to see all the pirate’s lore. They have almost 500 museum quality artifacts. Even Captain Kidd’s journal of his last voyage can be found here. Captain Thomas Tew, who had the only known authentic treasure chest can be found at this museum in the Keys. You will be taken back to a time you only heard about in the stories you read as a kid.

If you are into the pirates weapons, here are some interesting facts for you to check out when you go to the museum. Most of the pirates were armed and in order to survive battles the pirates were armed to the teeth. They say Blackbeard had six pistols and a sword, a cutlass and a musket. Tools doubled as weapons as well. You will hear about the boarding axe, hand weapons and cannons, chain shot and grape shot.

Here is a coupon for you to enjoy. Just click here for a dollar off the admission.

Here’s a plus, when you get done in the museum, you can go right to the Rum Barrel, where you can get something to eat and taste over 100 different rums. Here is a coupon for you. I love finding all these coupons because they add up when you are on vacation. Enjoy using them when you are in the Keys and check out the video below that shows you just what the Rum barrel is like.
