Two New Museums Open in Downtown St. Pete

This year, two major museums have opened in downtown St. Pete.

The Imagine Museum, located at 1901 Central Ave, celebrated its Grand Opening this January. Its primary collection displays the explosive growth and diversification of the studio glass movement in America since the 1960's, and extends to new directions in contemporary glass.

The James Museum of Western and Wildlife Art, located at 150 Central Ave, opened in April 2018. The museum has its roots in the deeply felt passion for art and culture shared by co-founders Tom and Mary James, and in the couple’s love for St. Pete, the city where they live. The James Museum will revive interest and passion about the history of the American West and the tenacious spirit of Native American, pioneer and immigrant cultures which embodies the history of our country.
