  • Writing this review to highly recommend the St. Pete Museum of History as a wonderful venue to have a wedding, or any special event. We had our wedding ceremony, and reception in the flight gallery, and cocktail hour in the museum exhibits, and it was perfect! Amy was such a pleasure to work with, and went above and beyond in making sure our big day went as smooth as possible. We GREATLY appreciated all of her help in coordinating the event, which went off without a hitch despite less than perfect weather conditions on the day of!! My husband and I had a great time at our wedding, as did all of our guests. Thanks for a night we will always remember!
  • 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!
