Learn about the history of the Tampa Bay region, from the Tocobaga Indians to St. Pete's spring training history to America's first commercial airline, at the St. Petersburg Museum of History. Exhibits include those on American Indian primitive shell tools and thousands of baseballs signed by the likes of Babe Ruth. There's also a full-size replica of the Benoist Airboat flown by pioneer aviator Tony Jannus.

Very small historical museum at the foot of The Pier. Exhibits vary, can be fairly good (saw a nice one on historic 1920's Golden Age hotels of St. Pete). Not essential, but can make an OK pop-in.
