Recommended Ratings & Reviews
It had been years before I finally went to the Tampa Bay History Center even though it was something I wanted to check out since it had opened. I must say that I was very impressed with the experience. Great exhibits, wonderful staff and great location.
Pros: Great for families because they have some exhibits that are entertaining for children too.
Cons: Multiple levels to get around but most museums are like this anyway. At least they have very large elevators!
The Tampa Bay History Museum is a unique place to go, especially if you're a Tampa Native! I loved their exhibits and learned a lot about the city I call home!
Great museum for history buffs and laypeople trying to learn more.
Great museum with a lot of cool artifacts and exhibits
Beautiful museum in the heart of downtown Tampa that always seems to features cool exhibits.
This building has a lot to offer as far as their history and amazing events that they host!
Pros: A beautiful building over the water and very educational.
Cons: The service is not very good. The bartenders act as though you are bothering them and it takes forever to get a drink or utensil.
