You hear a lot of chatter these days about St. Petersburg’s art and history museums, and how they’re getting to be world-class; yet another reason the city is becoming a “destination.” If you haven’t checked them out yourself, an opportune moment is about to present itself.
The national Free Museum Day is coming up Saturday, Sept. 22, and St. Petersburg’s major museums are all taking part. While the James Museum of Western and Wildlife Art, the Dali Museum and the St. Petersburg Museum of History will be free to Pinellas County residents with valid ID showing residency, these halls of treasure will be admission-free to one and all: The Holocaust Museum, Imagine Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts (with curtailed hours, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.), the Morean Arts Center and the Chihuly Collection, and the Carter G.
