Everyone connected to this gem Loves the region & has real passion for the work they do. I had a lovely rainy day here hearing story after story of the history of SPB and Pass a Grill. The experience at the museum enriched my own love of the area. Thank you ladies for your love & service.

Was so relieved that this historic building had a wheelchair access. Be certain to bring cash, they don't accept credit cards. This museum has a donation jar. Take the kids, they will enjoy the interaction.

This little museaum is run and maintained totally by volunteers who show a great love of the area. There is a ton of literature about different aspects of the region, including the local lore about the first inhabitants of Pass-a-Grille Beach and how the name came about. A great way to spend a few minutes out of the hot sun!

Lots of interesting artifacts and information tucked inside this old church that was used as a home for several years. Be sure to visit with the volunteer staff members to appreciate everything that is on display.

Well, it depends on your taste, but this is a very interesting stop, non-touristy, with locals who want to share their passion for local history,, which is quite interesting. I'd say you would spend an hour, but for insights into how St. Pete Beach developed, it was very good. Wonderful picture of Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio on the beach.

Donations based local museum. Interesting insight into the history of the islands. One can spent 20 minutes or two hours, depending on attention to all the displays. I am glad that locals have a place to deposit all their memorabilia rather than throwing it out.

My dad wanted us to tour this museum with him....he lives part-time at St. Pete Beach and he wanted to show it off. It is a small museum, but full of treasures and lots of information. Definitely worth spending a morning or afternoon at.

We visit this small museum all the time when we are in St Pete Beach (Pass a Grille). Very educational. A must place to see if you are in the area. Be sure to check hours of operation as they are only open a few days a week.
