The museum is very small you can walk it in no more than 1hr. But is very educational they have a cool section for those who love baseball; they also have a very nice intereactive florida section. Finaly the museum has a permanent exibit of a mummy.

History of the green benches, tourism, Native American Canoes, the first commercial aviation flights, the development of downtown, our most important founders, WWII experiences, hurricanes, all of this is available. I love this museum as a catalog of local information.

Yes there are a bunch of baseballs and a mummy but the exhibits are sparse. Admission for three was $39 and took less than an hour to go through it.

This is a nice small museum with just enough in it to make it fun. It has something for everyone. If you loved Babe Ruth or baseball there is a section just for that. St Pete was home to a lot of spring training leagues so we have that for our main part of history. It also doesn't cost to... More

My family really had a great time. There was something for everyone. Some aviation history, St. Pete history, and if you love baseball, a very impressive baseball exhibit.

If you want to learn more about Saint Petersburg's fascinating history, stop here for an afternoon. St. Pete is the birthplace of commercial aviation, and you will learn all about the first commercial flight across Tampa Bay. The Museum is renovating this exhibition, and it promises to be more comprehensive than it is now - but it's still fun to... More

You will learn a little bit more about Florida history here even if you visited the history museums in other cities. I love the old pictures of how Tampa used to look...sometimes we forget how much our coastline gets built up. There is a baseball section and there will be an airplane section someday..it is under construction.

As we are not American the huge amount of signed baseballs didn't do much for my wife and I . Plenty of printed material but very little actual historical pieces on display. Gave an okay history of the area but a little disappointing as we had just made a visit to the fine art gallery which was great!
