MOSI:  Museum of Science & Industry

Located near the University of South Florida, the Museum of Science & Industry or as locals call it, MOSI, is great place for both adults and children.  MOSI has more than 400,000 square feet of fun for all ages.  Interactive exhibits like The Amazing You, MISSION:  Moonbase, Bioworks Butterfly Garden, The Sanders Planetarium, and the IMAX Dome Theater, will keep you busy amazed throughout your visit.  Did you know that your ears and nose keep growing throughout your life?  

The Dali Museum

Located right on the water in downtown St. Petersburg, the Dali Museum provides patrons of the arts a unique perspective on some of Salvador Dali's best works.  It houses a permanent collection of over 1,500 paintings, drawings, and sculptures from the eccentric Spanish artist.  On November 8, 2014, a new exhibit "The Picasso/Dali, Dali/Picasso" promises to be "an international blockbuster for both museums as it will feature rarely loaned works from more than 25 international art museums and private collections worldwide pairing works of these leading artists of our era."  A must-see museum for art lovers and tourists alike, the Dali Museum is especially fantastic while touring the downtown St. Petersburg area in one of our luxurious limousines with Bayshore Limo.

Tampa Bay Automotive Museum 

Ok, we are a little biased because cars are kind of our thing.  That being said, the Tampa Bay Automotive Museum is a phenomenal collection one-offs and prototypes from Citroen, Mercedes-Benz, Maserati, and Jaguar just to name a few.  It's a great trip for the automobile enthusiast.  Heck, we may join you while you're there.  

There are many other must-see museums in the Tampa Bay area and if you're from out of town or a local, it's great way to see another side of the Bay area's arts & culture scene.  A great way to scope out the area is to book a limousine with us and we'll do the driving.
