Yelp’s Amuseumed

Yelp’s Amuseumed

With beaches and sports galore, it may be hard for some to take notice of the local fever for art, history, and education in Tampa Bay. This Weekly Yelp weaves readers in-and-out of the Bay Area’s top museums, where much of our proud history resides. Strap in and make sure your thinking caps are on tight!

A strong contender for our most-discussed museum is The Dali, and Christina C is a contributor to that stat. “This place is absolutely spectacular. We’ve been to museums in Paris, Sydney, and all over the U.S., but this is definitely one of my favorites – and not one to rush through. These paintings demand attention and contemplation of even their most subtle detail.” Does it get more glowing than that? If you consider yourself a buff of yesteryear, Paul K recommends theSt Petersburg Museum of History. He notes that here, you can find “a detailed look at St. Pete’s contributions to World War II, commercial aviation, and the simplicity of what used to be.”
