The museum is small, but the exhibits they have are done well. I especially enjoyed the sections on the history of the city. If you enjoy history or baseball, you will feel it is a worthwhile visit.

From the museum's own website and reviews online, I didn't have high expectations for this museum. But I had a two-for-one Groupon and time to kill. Unless you enjoy looking at autographed baseballs, there is little else to look at. Even at half-price, it was...More

What is there is really fun and cool to see, it's just that there's not a whole lot there. Enjoyable, but small, perfect to check out to get a slice of history, but doubt you would need to go back.

The current exhibit about WWII and black soldiers was excellent. it had some personal interviews with blacks who served during WWII. There was also a permanent exhibit of hundreds of baseballs signed by players including babe ruth and 19th century players.

The Right to Fight exhibit was great but that was it. Definitely not worth $15 per person. Where was the history of St. Pete? Baseballs and Janus plane? That's all?

Really not much to see and over priced for what you can see in about 15-20 min. The most interesting this it the Plane in the entryway.

IF it were not for the special trading exhibit about African-Americans during World War II, a visit here would be a waste. There is currently only one small room of local memorabilia. A good portion of the museum is dedicated to a collection of almost...More

Parking was great. Was not crowded. It was almost like it hidden gem there in Saint Pete. Very close to downtown so you can walk around afterwards
