A pirate museum in Key West is moving to another Florida city once sacked by swashbucklers.

Pirate Soul will move to St. Augustine in July.

Former Philadelphia 76ers president Pat Croce opened his $10 million museum five years ago. Pirate-themed costumes are popular during Key West's Fantasy Fest and Pirates in Paradise Festival, but Croce says not enough people came to the museum.

Croce's Rum Barrel bar and restaurant will stay put nearby.

The museum is home to some of Croce's personal pirate stash, including an original Jolly Roger flag and a treasure chest. It will close in Key West in July and reopen across from a 17th century Spanish fort in St. Augustine in November.

The city's archaeologist says St. Augustine was attacked by pirates in 1586 and in 1668.
