“Great Museum”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

A wonderful way to spend a morning or afternoon. They have a very interesting collection and I would definitely go back next time I am in St. Pete. Even my husband enjoyed it, which was a surprise.

“Wow--very expensive place to visit”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

We mostly wanted to see the Impressionist painters, but the Panama Canal exhibit was also interesting. Guess we're spoiled by the free admission at the national museums in Washington DC where we live.

“Surprising”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

I've lived in towns with famous museums, and this place is surprising. Real quality in the permanent collection. The curators do a great job bringing interesting shows to town.
