Museum of Fine Arts
Inside a building in St. Petersburg, works of art from around the world gather like good friends. Georgia O'Keeffe's Poppy hangs not far from Paul Cézanne's A Corner of the Woods, Pointoise. Claude Monet's Houses of Parliament gives a glimpse of faraway lands, while Thomas Moran's Florida Landscape stays closer to home.
With a range of permanent and rotating exhibitions, the Museum of Fine Arts seeks to engage visitors with art while preserving the pieces in its care. Much of the collection resides in an original 1960s building, but the adjacent modern gallery area draws in visitors with special exhibitions, interactive educational facilities for children, as well as being a beautiful location to hold a corporate dinner, wedding reception, or event. Guests can also stroll into the museum store to browse unique gifts, artisan jewelry, books, and more.
