Being a tourist in my own town

St Petersburg in Florida is known for having some interesting museums. There’s a Dali, a Chihuly, a Holocaust and the Fine Arts Museum. I have been to all of them at one time or another. A new museum opened up this spring and I finally got a chance to visit it while my sister was visiting over Thanksgiving Weekend. Tom James, of Raymond James Financial, opened The James Museum of Western and Wildlife Art. It’s one of Florida’s largest private art collections, consisting of close to 3,000 works of art and includes original paintings, sculptures and graphics. You are allowed to take pictures so below are some of my favorites.

This is only a small sampling of what’s in the museum. If you’re ever in the Tampa bay area and it’s too hot to be outside, I would recommend this place.

  1. What fabulous artwork. Sometimes, it’s the right thing to be a tourist in your own town. Any time I moved, I asked newcomers, as opposed to old-timers, if I wanted to find something. Thanks for linking up to My Corner of the World!
