  • Not much to see here..thought there be lots of items from days gone by...lots of photos of Cuba..1 hr of my life I won't get back..it wasn't cheap either . 
  • Enjoyed learning about the history of the county. The exhibit about civil rights in the military, including a very interesting film about the Tuskegee Airmen in WW2, was worth the price of admission. 
  • If you don't visit the St. Petersburg Museum of History for any other reason, you have to marvel at Schrader's Little Cooperstown, the world's largest collection of autographed baseballs, over 4,800 o...  more »

  • We had our wedding at the Museum of History on October 22. We had the wedding ceremony indoors in their flight gallery , the cocktail hour thru the exhibits and the reception in the flight gallery. it was amazing. The staff is so easy to work with, the price is reasonable and the location is so perfect. My guests loved the venue. I could not have asked for a more perfect venue.
  • This is a very cool hidden gem. I'm not crazy about the baseball part of it, but the history museum itself is really interesting and has some great photos from back in the day in St. Pete. I love seeing the dirt streets where Beach Drive is! Definitely worth a visit.
  • I've been coming to the museum every few years for the past 15 years now. The front area of the museum used to house lots of artifacts of local aviation historical significance and other subjects; now almost empty except for a big screen production at the far end w/seating for only 3-4 people and the full size replica of the Benoit seaplane suspended overhead. Theatrical touch is nice & modern yet doesn't have nearly as much historical material. The middle third of the museum which used to tell a lot more about Pinellas County and St. Petersburg is now some exhibit hundreds of baseballs which I really hope was not paid for with taxpayer dollars. Yes Virginia, there already is a Baseball Hall of Fame. The mummy exhibit from another country is an even more blatant example of this museum having abandoned its local historic roots and sense of purpose. Someone please open a new local History Museum!
  • A lot of love went into this place. The musuem is bigger than it looks and has alot of great exhibits. It seems like the musuem is very well run.
  • The museum is located on 2nd Ave NE, locally known as the Pier Approach. Currently the pier is longer, but this museum has exhibits you won't find anywhere.
