 Gulf Beaches Historical Museum, St. Pete Beach, Florida

The Gulf Beaches Historical Museum is located in the heart of St. Pete Beach’s National Historic District at 115-10th Avenue in what was the first church built on Pinellas County’s barrier islands. The Museum through photographs, news clippings and artifacts dating from the 1500s thru today, traces the barrier islands and our city's rich history. The Museum continues to collect artifacts and archival material to help preserve the cultural history of the islands. Many of Pass-A-Grille’s pioneer families and long-time residents assist in this endeavor.
Special educational tours can be arranged for clubs, schools, churches, and civic organizations. Historical lectures, changing exhibits, fundraising events, and children’s activities round out the Museum’s calendar of events.
