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!
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.
