I was surprised about all the history in Pass a Grille. The museum has an array of historical items and a slide show showing how it used to be there in that little community way back in the early 1900's up to the present day. Wow! what a change. They also have a guided tour which we had and our... More

It took about an hour to visit. Information is given by volunteers before you tour. Donations are invited. The museum was originally a church but is chocked full of unique historical items. Wed stop in again if traveling this way. It's within a short block of the water and a few shops and restaurants.

If you want to know the history of the towns along the Gulf of Mexico in the St Pete area, this is the place to visit. The volunteers are very helpful and there is even a cute gift shop.

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.
