We were in St.Pete for the weekend and saw the building at the end of the pier so we decided to park and find out what it was. I was saddened to find it was closed and in such a state. I looked it up...More

We should have checked first but lesson learned. The building that used to be full of shops and an aquarium is closed to due structural integrity. The park nearby had a lot of homeless people in it. Probably was a nice place at one time....More

The St. Petersburg Pier closed a year ago, so the aquarium is no longer there, nor are the shops. But the area around the Pier building is still open to visitors, and is well worth the walk from the nearby parking lots (maybe 1/4 mile)...More

Sadly, this location is now closed, but I hope that they come back and come back stronger and bigger than before. While open it was a little small and a bit pricey. They also offered summer camps for all ages of children.

Aquarium closed since May 2013 and not expected to return. The pier is also closed and will not be rebuilt for several years.

Please note that the St. Pete Pier is closed and so is this attraction. Don't know if it has reopened elsewhere. Suggest to go to the Clearwater Marine Museum where you can see Winter the dolphin.

In it's day, this was a great exhibit, but it's closed now and demolition of our iconic pier has begun...stay tuned for the new pier design.
