This is a very small and underfunded museum. Probably good for school students learning about their city. There was a nice collection of WW II posters.

A nice little spot to spend a rainy day in Florida! Quite informative. Nice to get to know some of the history of the area.

The museum charts St. Petersburg history, including quite a but of its aviation history. It also has archives you can make an appointment to go through if you have a specific research interest. Plan on two hours there.

Okay, so there are a lot of interesting reasons to visit this small but amazing museum--but the real reason is the mummy. When I used to live nearby the original museum as a kid, the mummy used to freak me out. She's still there...waiting for you!

Went recently for the World War 2 exhibit and it was very nice. Museum focuses on the Tampa Bay area and Florida's history, so if you want to learn a few things about your home state or place your vacationing in, I would say stop by if you are in the St. Pete downtown area.
