Our Mission is to collect, preserve, and interpret the history of St. Petersburg and the Pinellas Peninsula; to increase and facilitate the understanding and appreciation of this unique area for the community and its visitors; to maintain an archival library and a museum in which to display collections and provide educational programs that will promote, reflect and celebrate our cultural heritage.
VISION: Challenge, Change, and Continuity
Our “VISION” exhibit tells the story of St. Petersburg and lower Pinellas starting with our Native American peoples through the modern era. The exhibit includes hundreds of historic photos and artifacts including a cannon ball fired by Union sailors, a Megalethoscope (a predecessor of modern motion picture projectors), and replicas of the early Williams Park band shell bonnet and a parlor car from the Orange Belt Railway.
