The Bahamas Pirates of Nassau

For those interested in the darker side of the Bahamas' history, you should check out the Pirates of Nassau Museum. You'll board the 'Revenge' and get to experience life through the eyes of the pirates who controlled the Caribbean by means of pillaging and plundering. You'll learn about their code of conduct as you walk among them while they plot out their search for treasure as they drink and gamble.

Once you step inside the Pirates of Nassau Museum, you'll be immersed in the Golden Age of Piracy that lasted for 30 years, from 1690 to 1720. Nassau was the heart center to pirates because of it being a tropical paradise; its beauty attracted the greatest concentration of pirates ever seen in the New World. Nassau's shallow waters made sure that the larger man-of-war ships of the British Royal Navy couldn't navigate close enough to be effective, but instead, the shallow waters favored the faster shallow draft vessels of the pirates.

The museum is very conveniently located for cruise ship visitors and for guests staying at a Bahamas luxury hotel. Situated within a short swagger of the Straw Market on Bay Street, the museum is a 'must-see' while visiting Nassau. Ask the concierge or the front-desk of the hotel if they offer their guests discount tickets.
