A small museum located right on the wharf, the Whydah catalogs the only certified pirate ship ever found in the area. Not only can you touch some real pirate's booty like 300-year-old coins, but the National Geographic-sponsored excavation teams are still bringing up new discoveries every year. Most of the information is presented in long blocks of text next to the displays, so this visit is best left to older children and those with a passion for the subject. Admission is $10.
