I love this little museum, parts of which are dedicated to St. Pete's history, and parts of which explain St. Pete's history as related to other issues. There was quite a large baseball exhibition during our visit but as neither my boyfriend and I are...More

This was a smaller museum but enjoyed learning about the history of St. Petersburg. The special exhibit of the solders thru pictures was very interesting. I also enjoyed the story of the first commercial flight.

Loved visiting with the curator who recently acquired a special collection of a photography collection of American wars. That & the airline collection plan were very educational.

This is not a commercialized museum. The layout of their selective exhibits are functional. This is a small museum but not one that desperately takes in any collection they can find; always current.
