If you don't visit the St. Petersburg Museum of History for any other reason, you have to marvel at Schrader's Little Cooperstown, the world's largest collection of autographed baseballs, over 4,800 of them. In one room, you can see Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, Stan Musial and Mickey Mantle. It is appropriate because one-time St.... More

The museum is small but if you like baseball, they have a. Ice collection. We enjoyed the Cuba photography exhibit on natural sites there.

Visited here to try and catch some local history, however that was available on a limited basis as the primary attractions were Little Cooperstown and Cuba. There were some photos of the history of St. Pete, but the baseball collection in Little Cooperstown, over 4800 signed baseballs, was well worth the admission.

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.
