  • If you're in downtown St Pete and are curious about local history, this is a nice visit. On the water, just down the street from the Fine Art Museum. They had two good exhibits, one on Seminole people...  more »

  • Fun stop in downtown St. Pete! Informative, interesting and a must for baseball fans. The ladies at the front counter were awesome!!! They were friendly, fun and knowledgeable! I can't wait to go back.
  • Absolutely love the mummy that's there! Highly recommend anyone to head there! They just need more of a selection on Egypt!
  • Though small compared to other museums in the area it is worth the visit. Took my father over to see the Schrader’s Little Cooperstown exhibit and it was a big hit. For a man who as kid grew up around the original Yankee stadium going to games whenever possible and actually been to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown; he really enjoyed this exhibit. We're already making plans to go back again and take his brother when he comes to visit later this year.
  • Hidden gem. The first paid, commercial airline flight was flown out of St Petersburg! Who knew?! Very nice exhibit on Tony Jannus circa MAR 2017. I also caught the Fighting for the Right to Fight exhibit that highlighted the efforts and contributions of African Americans during World War II. Reasonably priced and well worth a stop!
  • Was very interesting. Would have liked to have a little more history​ on St Pete. Didn't explain the green bench only had a picture of many people sitting on green benches.
