This is a small museum with St. Petersburg history. They have a wonderful collection of signed baseballs as well as a 3000 year old mummy. There is limited free parking behind the museum. The girl at the front desk was very nice. We had a Groupon which made it an excellent value.

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

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
