This is a small museum staffed by loyal volunteers. It is informative about its beginnings and the good people who brought it along as a pleasant place to live or vacation. Centrally located, park you car, visit and stroll the lanes for shopping and dining experiences.

Though small, the photos and stories bring the museum to life. Free to get into, they also sells some local gifts which we purchased . the volunteers were there to answer any questions and give you insight to their museum. Enjoyed our visit, went back again to check out some areas of interest to me.

I was impressed with the quality of the exhibits, the knowledge of the staff, and the depth of materials available at the Gulf Beaches Historical Museum. It's easy to find, offers ample parking, and the volunteer staff is outstanding. In an area with a rich history, it provides unique insights and an immersive experience into Pass-A-Grille's storied past.

Small museum to read all the captions of history in the area. We stopped by for half an hour as part of our bike tour of Fort Desoto. Nicely done for a quick overview of the history of the Tampa Bay area. Learned a lot in our short visit!

What a nice place to spend some time and catch up on the beach history. The museum is not very big, does not cost to get in, the memorabilia very local and cool and everyone is friendly and has a story. We found this to be more than we expected. The old church/house conversion is part of the story and... More

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!
