For nearly a century, the St. Petersburg Museum of History has shared the stories of the Sunshine City with visitors and residents alike. Stroll through the Sunshine City Gallery to learn the history of St. Petersburg – from pioneers and trains to World War II and World Famous Webb’s City. Don’t miss the Flight One Gallery, detailing the birth of commercial aviation right here in St. Petersburg, and see the first passenger aircraft that flew across the bay to Tampa – a trip that used to take hours before the W. Howard Frankland and Gandy bridges were built. The world's largest collection of signed baseballs was donated by local resident Dennis Schrader. The permanent exhibit features original documents, story boards and video screens connecting America’s national pastime with historical events from the region and around the world. Visit St. Petersburg’s oldest resident – an authentic 3,000-year-old Egyptian mummy as well as a replica of King Tut’s Tomb.
