St. Petersburg, FL (September 28, 2016) – One of the St. Petersburg Museum of History’s most popular exhibits will be around a little bit longer. Experience Cuba – a multi-faceted exhibition celebrating the beauty, culture and history of the once forbidden island – will remain open to visitors through Sunday, October 16.

“The attendance numbers for this amazing exhibit remain strong, which is rare for a temporary exhibit towards the end of its run,” said Executive Director Rui Farias. “We are grateful and honored to have the opportunity to continue to present this amazing exhibit to residents and visitors of Tampa Bay.”

Presented by AARP and the Florida Humanities Council, Experience Cuba is anchored by Cuba, The Natural Beauty – A Photography Exhibit by renowned Florida photographer Clyde Butcher. The exhibit also includes artwork from modern Cuban artists, Los Carpinteros and Ibrahim Miranda, as well as a gallery of photographs of Cuba submitted by the Tampa Bay community.

Experience Cuba was scheduled to close September 30, 2016.

The St. Petersburg Museum of History – celebrating its 94th year – is located at 335 2nd Avenue NE on the Pier Approach. Hours are 10am-5pm Monday-Saturday and Noon-5pm on Sundays. For more information, please call 727.894.1052 or visit
