Pirate Ship Museum

Looks like it would be an amazing place to visit. However, it's closed due to COVID-19 at the moment. I hope they open again soon.

[Brian From Rockland County NY, 07/24/2020]

Good news: the museum is back open with safety procedures in place. "Masks are required for the safety of fellow pirates."
