  • This is a visual piece of art from the grounds of the museum to the facade to the interior to the art. It sits at ground zero for downtown St Pete nestled between the water and the multiple restaurants and high rise condos. Escape from civilization and enter a world of first class art forms from the old masters to free wheeling folks determined to express themselves visually. Take time to muse over the reason people created what they did. Don't rush through the museum or you'll miss the tranquility and peace it offers.
  • They have new exhibits often. The parking is in the back lot. I attended one of their intimate concerts which they host regularly. The building is clean and they have a decent variety of art work. They also have a cafe. If the weather is good you can eat outside with a view of boat docks.
  • You all MUST view the ORIGAMI exhibit while it continues to be available at this museum. The history is beautifully explained as are the multiple sizes & variations so exquisitely displayed. Such JOY is this fabulous experience!
  • It's a decent museum. The problem is that it tries to have a little bit of everything. But it's too small to pull it off. If the museum put a heavier focus on a few select styles it would be a much more cohesive and rewarding experience. It needs a point of view.
  • The Museum of Fine Arts never disappoints. They keep the classic art but had a unique skill set for bringing modern art to the audience. I stay there all day & it's amazing to see how they just transform a room to fit any occasion! Operations at the museum keeps a tight ship because I have seen so many moving parts & a staff member in full service mode. A must see even for the locals.
