St. Petersburg Museum of History
Since 1922, St. Petersburg Museum of History has preserved the heritage of St. Petersburg and the Pinellas Peninsula with expansive collections and four galleries that host annually rotating exhibits. Its permanent exhibits, meanwhile, trace the area’s history from Native Americans to the present day through artifacts such as a cannonball fired by Union sailors and replica of a parlor car from the Orange Belt Railway. Elsewhere, the World's First Commercial Airline Gallery charts commercial aviation history with a full-size working replica of the Benoist Airboat and the first-ever pterodactyl to earn a commercial-flying license. Visitors looking to delve deeper into the past can explore more than 32,000 artifacts in the museum archives or partake in one of its educational programs such as tours, community classes, and camps.

“I'd love to see the museum expand to include more history of St. Petersburg and the surrounding areas of Pinellas County. For example, pictures, artifacts, etc. of the building of the bridges closing the gap between Tampa and St. Petersburg. Tropicana Field, USF - St. Pete campus, Skyway bridge, Gandy, US19's past, including mafia affiliation, Oldsmar's beginnings with R.E. Olds' ideas, including the casino, railway, etc. The old Skyway and its downfall. There is so much history here. It seems the museum has only three areas - the Native Americans, Webb's City, and the plane that first connected Tampa to St. Pete. What about the ferry, fashion through the years, schools, roads, housing, etc?”
