This small piece of history gives you an insight as to what the early settlers of this community went through. It is a small museum but if in the area worth a viewing.

A interesting, historical place...the volunteers are very knowledgeable and helpful. It's about a church, that became a house, then became a museum. It must have been a wonderful church as well as a home. The chandelier hanging in the museum is the same one that hung in the house. And it has a chalkboard that you can sign if you... More

This little museum was bequeathed to the people of St Pete and is run by volunteers who are passionate about the building and all the historic content. We were lucky to receive a full tour, and were blown away by the changes to PAG over the years. The museum does need support from locals and holiday makers alike so if... More

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!
