  • I visited this museum for a wedding. The ceremony was held outside by the long draping trees followed by the reception inside. It was a very upscale venue with beautiful artwork as the back drop. 
  • Small, but nice collection of art, near the Tampa Bay waterfront in downtown St. Petersburg, FL. A great rainy day option if you can't go to the beach. A relaxing venue for affordable concerts by tale...  more »
  • I went expecting a 2-3 hour experience. I spent 5. Enough said? The breadth and quality of the collection far exceeded my expectations. I will return, because even after 5 hours my appetite had not be...  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.
