We were greeted in this museum by a nice young lady who gave us little hints where we should start looking first. The cuban exhibit had a little film about a cuban cigar factory and how it started and where it is today. The family story was interesting from beginning to end. A little exhibit about St. Petersburg. And....i loved... More

Had the opportunity to take my children to this Gem and was pleasantly surprised. It is actually larger than it appears from the outside and there is a great deal of Historical Artifacts from the region. Great family experience and happy we stopped in!

It is a small museum, but they do have something interesting sights. I especially enjoyed the sarcophagus they had displayed. They also have a large air plane exhibit.

History of area flight and a great baseball collection. The best was the photography exhibit of Cuba. Beautiful island! Inviting and open museum - worth the visit.

Walking around St Pete, and we decided to stop in. The history of St Pete is interesting. The best part for me was the signed baseball collection.

I found tickets for this place on Groupon. I am absolutely fascinated with St. Petersburg history, so I was excited to go. The "main" exhibit at the time was so-so, as I was really looking forward to St. Pete history. There was only ONE room devoted to it. I was slightly disappointed. There were some fun artifacts and looping video... More

After walking by this local history museum for years, we went in and found it interesting and informative as to the local history from before being settled by Europeans through to modern times. It took a few hours to get through, and would be interesting, I think, to most locals or even tourists with an interest in history. Seems bigger... More

This is a must see for everyone. Whether you live in St Pete or are visiting, the rich history of the area, and the combination of nearby things to do and the beautiful waterfront system makes this a compelling stop!

Small museum but great inside. Interesting exhibits, some permanent and some changing. Going thru a renovation, but didn't impact our visit at all.
