Owner description: Located in the heart of beautiful Downtown St. Petersburg,the Progress Energy Center for the Arts—Mahaffey Theater is a 2,031 seat cultural jewel featuring elegant ballroom space, spectacular waterfront views, and European box-style seating. Just steps away from the culturally vibrant Downtown and minutes away from white sandy beaches and world-famous museums, the Mahaffey hosts top-quality national and international artists and performances – Broadway, classical, pop, rock, comedy, dance, family, and the renowned Florida Orchestra. Additionally, the theater supports the highly successful Class Acts program, which enables school children to experience the performing arts through in-theater performances as well as in-school outreach and extension programs.

They have a traveling Titanic exhibit there through March 2013 that is a must see.

Many video presentations of the search and the site; a lot of artifacts raised from the debris floor but none (as it should be) from the wreck itself which is being respected as a tomb for the dead.

Outstanding exhibit.

This is my third Titanic exhibit and it's the worst. I attended the original in St. petersburg over 10 years ago and then again when it came to MOSI. Both were awesome. This exhibit is bland,, uninspired, sparse and just plain a rip off. Absolutely nothing compared to the other exhibits. Some of the rooms are so dark (to preserve the artifacts) that it was pointless to even have the - you could not see anything. The first room has 3 items and a video. The rooms set up to look like the sleeping quarters were well done, but that's all the plus I can say about this. Took us less than 10 minutes to absorb all the history and culture this exhibit has to offer. This is plain lame. Save your time and money.

Just okay. Was expecting a lot more. Not as many artifacts on display as you would expect. The extra 5 dollars for the audio tour is not really worth it. Staff was very nice and helpful.
