The original Florida International Museum opened in 1995 in a former department store and featured traveling blockbuster exhibitions, including "Treasures of the Czars" in 1995, "Splendors of Ancient Egypt" in 1996, "Titanic" in 1998, and "Diana, a Celebration" in 2005. In 2006 the museum moved to a smaller space in St. Petersburg College’s Downtown Center. The original museum's final special exhibit was "Vatican Splendors" in 2008. The museum became a part of St. Petersburg College later in 2008, and was retitled.
Gulf Coast Museum of Art Collection
The contemporary Florida art collections of the now-defunct Gulf Coast Museum of Art became part of the Florida International Museum at St. Petersburg College in 2009. The new museum's inaugural exhibit in 2009 was "In a New Light – Selections from the Gulf Coast Museum of Art Collection". The museum was permanently closed on December 4, 2010.
