The James Museum of Western & Wildlife Art is located at 150 Central Ave. in St. Petersburg. It opened in April 2018 and its collection transports visitors through the rich and diverse heritage of the American West. More than 400 works of art evoke the spirit of a wide-open frontier and the beauty of life in the wild. The museum engages the community through a variety of programs and educational opportunities that bring our history and culture to life.
Museum co-founders Tom and Mary James have created a vast artistic legacy — one populated by emerging artists and living legends and filled with tribal tradition and classical finesse. In building this splendid home for a part of their vast personal collection of Western and wildlife art, Tom and Mary James have succeeded in their aim to share their vision and devotion to art with thousands of visitors.
