I love museums. I have been to many all over the US. Not to much of a collection. My husband and I were expecting something more because this is a bigger city, our expectations were deflated. It was expensive and really not worth it. The vagrants outside asking for handouts was quite a turn off. Where was security?

Our family recently visited in order to see the Norman Rockwell exhibit. We are regulars at SONO Cafe on the premises and so glad we saw this exhibit on its final day. Very modern, attractive museum with plenty of touring exhibits. We'll most likely become members and enjoy all the reciprocal benefits. Special rates for teachers and students. Friendly staff.

I went to see the Norman Rockwell exhibit, something I'd wanted to see for a long time. I did not disappoint! Original oil paintings of everything including Daniel Boone, Boy Scouts (a life-long subject), Abraham Lincoln, and the now famous All We Live With which has come to identify Brown vs. The Board of Education but was a 1964 Look...

Being an architect the building and its details (facade screen) were of interest. It's a beautiful sight with the sloping grounds, the adjacent river/river walk and views across the water. The play of solids and voids on the exterior and the design of the sunscreen panels were of interest (to me) The 2 story lobby space you enter us very... More

Last Sunday we participated in the docent led tour of the museum's exhibit of Norman Rockwell art work. It was so much fun to go back to the day when you waited for the Saturday Evening Post's cover! The exhibit was excellent. Gave great insight into the life of Norman Rockwell as well as a generous display of his work.... More

this is very good experience for most everyone. the Rockwell exhibit, with the four freedoms and the girl in the mirror were a joy to see. and the building really nice maybe the regular items didn't connect as well for me and the food wasn't so tasty - but this is a worthy facility for the grounds which it occupies.

Lynn and I and 43 members of our car club recently toured the Norman Rockwell traveling exhibit at the Tampa Museum of Art. We had been to an early tour of the Rockwell Saturday Evening Post covers in an art museum in Winter Park a few years ago and thought that this would be more of the same. This exhibit... More

Norman Rockwell exhibit was wonderful! Friendly staff and well curated. I had some time during a business meeting and I'm glad I made the choice to visit.

Having lived in the area and lived through the years of controversy as the new building was going to be sited and then built, we expected a lot. We were very disappointed. We went to see the special exhibition on impressionism. The 49 paintings and drawings were GREAT! Well worth the price of admission and our time. But then we... More

This museum like the Dali in St. Pete, gives the impression that there is a bigger collection on display than you will see. There is basically a large gallery with a permanent collection and a traveling exhibit. For the money St. Petersburg Art Museum is better.
