The St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum is a museum dedicated to pirates artifacts.
Formerly known as the Pirate Soul Museum, the museum was located at 524 Front Street, Key West, Florida, United States. It was announced in February 2010 that the museum was being moved to St Augustine, Florida. It reopened there on December 8, 2010 as the St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum.
The museum houses 48 individual exhibit areas and states it contains the largest and most authentic collection of pirate artifacts ever displayed under one roof. Among its exhibits are Blackbeard's original blunderbuss, pieces of gold retrieved from his warship the Queen Anne's Revenge, one of only three remaining authentic Jolly Roger flags in the world, and Thomas Tew's original treasure chest (the only known authentic pirate treasure chest in the world).
