Museums in St. Petersburg, Florida

The faced of the Chihuly Collection building in St. Petersburg, Florida.

The Chihuly Collection in St. Petersburg, Florida is one of the largest representations of Dale Chihuly’s glass works in the world

I was very impressed with the museums of St. Petersburg. While St. Pete doesn’t have a vast number of museums, many of these museums are very focused in their respective genre. This is clear when visiting the museums of Salvador Dali and Dale Chihuly which are among the best collections in the world concerning those artists.

The Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) of St. Petersburg well represents the world history of art. Another museum covers the history of the Holocaust while yet another cover’s St. Pete’s local history including Tampa Bay’s history of baseball.

If you want to dig deeper, contact the Morean Arts Center who besides sponsoring the Chihuly Collection also delve into current glass blowing and clay art projects. Speaking of glass, try to make some time to check out the stained glass windows at the First United Methodist Church.
