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?

I was delighted to see that a newspaperman played such a large role in establishing the wonderful St. Petersburg waterfront for the public rather than a seaport.
