  • My wife and I visited this museum for the first time to see the African American exhibit Reverberations as we received so much more. We alloted 2 hours and even that was not enough time to see...  more »
  • What a gorgeous collection of bronze statues - simply breathtaking. The museum is a real treat in the middle of St Pete  more »
  • Very nice collection of western art. Beautiful sculptures and paintings. The halls were expansive and laid out comfortably for easy viewing. The gift shop and cafe provided a nice finish with craft beer and good food. Military discounts and AARP discounts available. At 20 bucks it was a great way to spend an afternoon.
  • An amazing, extensive collection of Native American, cowboy/Western, and wildlife artwork. Hard to believe this is all one person's private collection. You could easily spend 2-3 hours looking at everything. The interior itself is a stunning work of architecture. Not crowded. A nice cafe and bar next to the gift shop.
