Comments : 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!

Comments : 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.
