Information on the James Museum
The James Museum of Western & Wildlife Art provides experiences that inspire human connection and transformation through art depicting the peoples, landscapes, and history of the American West, and wildlife of the world. More than 400 premiere works of art including sculpture, paintings and jewelry are on display in the museum’s 26,000 square feet of gallery space. The museum engages the community through programs and educational opportunities, for all ages, that bring our history to life and amplify voices that are not often at the forefront of mainstream western art. When The James Museum opened in April 2018 it became one of the newest additions to St. Petersburg’s thriving arts community. Learn more and plan your visit at thejamesmuseum.org!
We will be visiting on the next to last day of the special exhibit of Ansel Adams and Clyde Butcher landscapes. So this is a great opportunity to see some of these master photographers’ work. We will have at least one docent to act as our guide to give us an inside look at the museum. Once the tour is completed you will have the opportunity to explore the museum on your own. Even if you have seen this exhibit the additional insight provided by the docent may be a great reason to visit again!
Photography is allowed except where noted. Feel free to share on social media using #thejamesmuseum. No flash photography, tripods, video cameras or selfie sticks, please!
Ansel Adams is one of the great landscape photographers and Clyde Butcher is a living Florida legend. Seeing the masters’ work can give you inspiration and help you take your photography to the next level. Even if you are not a landscape photographer, these masters’ use of natural light can only add to your knowledge.
Museum Parking is available on Levels 3 & 4 of the automated South Core Parking Garage located above the museum. Enter at 101 1st Ave S, St. Petersburg, FL 33701. The first hour in the garage is free and $1/hour after that. Please note: special event rates vary and may apply.
The museum has given us a great deal at $15 per person. This is a discount of up to $15 when the tour guide fee is included. I will need to collect the fee prior to all of us entering the museum. Please arrive at the museum by 9:30 AM with the correct change. If you arrive after the group has entered the museum at 10 AM you will have to pay the full fee.
We will spend several hours at the museum and follow that up with lunch at one of the local restaurants. Everyone is welcome to join in!
