The museum has lots of interesting info about the origins of the Pass-a-grille community. Located in the heart of the Pass-A-Grille historic district, the Gulf Beaches Historical Museum is located in the first church built on a Pinellas County barrier island. Exhibits found in the museum examine the history and culture of Pinellas County's barrier islands. The museum is home to an extensive collection of photographs, newspaper clippings and artifacts. The museum is staffed by volunteers, many of whom are intimately familiar with Pass-A-Grille's history and its pioneer families.

Museum exhibits trace the rich history of Pinellas County’s barrier islands through photographs, news clippings, and artifacts dating from the 1500s through modern times. More than a mere collection of objects, these items present a unique educational experience for present and future generations.

The Museum continues to collect artifacts and archival material to help preserve the cultural history of the islands. Many of Pass-A-Grille’s pioneer families and long-time residents assist in this endeavor.
