Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, Florida

The Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, Florida was founded by Margaret Acheson Stuart (1896-1980) and reflects her vision of providing outstanding examples of world art in an inviting, elegant setting. The MFA, a city landmark, opened to the public in 1965–the first art museum in St. Petersburg located on the downtown waterfront. Keeping the galleries intimately scaled was important to Mrs. Stuart. The Museum is dedicated to serving all people by pursuing excellence in art from antiquity to the present through the MFA collection, exhibitions, and education for its diverse audiences.

The content of this site is the responsibility of The Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, FL.
