The St. Petersburg Museum of History has been sharing stories of the Sunshine City, and the Tampa Bay region for nearly a century. Located at the entrance to the St. Pete Pier District, the Museum of History also archives the city's rich heritage and acts as a research and teaching facility.
Recently the St. Petersburg Museum of History underwent a major renovation, including the addition of a 10,000-square-foot structure that will hold the Visit St. Pete/Clearwater welcome center, a roof-top terrace and a main gallery space to feature Explore Florida! - an interactive exhibit sharing Florida's 500+ year history.
We speak with Ya La'ford whose art piece will wrap the exterior of the new Museum expansion. Intersections is based on an 1891 Florida railway map.
