  • I've chaired an annual Gala/banquet there four years in a row. Excellent venue. The museum is a bit stuffy though, not fun like the Dali. Guards are all over the place to make sure you don't touch any...  more »
  • Came here because boyfriend wanted to go and it was his birthday...he understands and appreciates art much more than I. He liked it so I guess its a place to visit if you are the same. Interesting col...  more »
  • I found the collection boring. There was one Rockwell, and two O'Keefe as well as a Monet or two and Cezanne. But, all in all I wasn't that impressed. We were the only people in the museum on a Wednes...  more »

  • $5 on Thursdays after 5PM is a fantastic deal. We come here about once a month. There is always something new to see. We love that we can take photos and sketch any of the exhibits. This is really helpful for my son who is autistic. Staff are helpful.
  • I've only been once, but I walk by often. I just think it is about as perfect of a spot it could be in, and the exhibit I went to was fabulously setup and organized. Clean building inside that is good sized, but not a mammoth like other museums can be.
  • Great little museum with a nice collection of paintings, sculptures, and modern exhibits. Wonderful staff very helpful and courteous.
  • Beautiful museum. The area on the right was awesome. The seasonal exhibits in the left were nice, one was very odd and slightly distasteful but that's not the museum's fault.
  • I love having this museum in downtown St. Pete. It's big enough to have a great collection but small enough to do in a few hours if you're in a hurry. They get some great changing exhibits, and it's right next to lots of restaurants, so you can make a day of visiting the museum and having lunch or dinner.
