Being a Florida resident comes with its perks, from calling its sandy shores home to discounts on trips to Disney World and Busch Gardens, and everything in between. But if crowded theme parks aren't really your thing, a resident discount to Imagine Museum in St. Pete might speak more your language — where you can get lost in a world of trippy glass art.
You'll find Imagine and its 2 floors full of 21 out-of-this-world exhibits at 1901 Central Avenue in
St. Petersburg. Given the fragile nature of these displays, you'll find yourself in a strict look-but-don't-touch zone of gravity-defying and psychedelic creations from a variety of artists.
Some exhibits are around for a limited time, while others are regularly on display. A glass path hallway installation of creations on the 2nd floor also changes annually to give museum-goers a unique experience as they return to stroll through the galleries.
You can see a list of ongoing exhibits as of publication below:
Admission to this gallery would normally run for $15, but as a part of their summer discount deal for residents, you can get in for just $10. Children of residents between 7 and 17 can also get in for just $5, with children 6 and under always admitted free.
According to the promotional ticket posting by Imagine on Eventbrite, the resident local rate ticket will allow you to explore their 21 galleries of inspiring contemporary glass art from around the world.
Admission will also include access to their recently unveiled Out of This World Summer Scavenger Hunt completely free and introductory tours starting at 3 pm Tuesdays through Fridays.
Those hoping to snag the ticket deal have the whole summer to do so as the promotion will run now through September 30, 2023.
Not a resident but still looking for a discount? Additional deals are available year-round for college students, seniors aged 65 and up, educators, and veterans with valid IDs.
