I've finally made it to the Tampa Museum of Art for the Poseidon exhibit and I was very impressed. You can tell the staff loves what they do. The exhibit was very informational and beautiful. It's definitely worth a visit!

We went for the free Art Spot on Saturday morning which was amazing! The museum is so pretty, there is a cafe, parking (cheap), playground and fountain to splash in outside. They also have free Friday nights! Great for any age.

Beautiful building in a great location, but still lacking. The gallery itself was not that impressive. Best part of my visit was a silent movie that left me in awe. Never realized a motion picture could be art. Sat thru it three times! I will definitely keep going back to see how the museum evolves. It's definitely worth a visit... More

This museum basically has 6 rooms for art that feel very empty. Two rooms held a single sculpture each. I enjoyed what I saw, but we were done in 30 minutes. We liked the gift shop, some unique items to choose from. We did not try the café. I'm not sure I could recommend unless I knew this was exactly... More

We loved this museum and the wonderful print show we happened upon. Beautiful gallery spaces and friendly guards. Lovely museum shop and the gelato was so good! We tried to buy a catalog for the show but it was sold out. We got on a handwritten mailing list, prepaid for the next shipment and it all worked out. Don't miss... More

On their website they allege to have contemporary art and somehow have received positive reviews? Perhaps from members if they have some? Although they were open, we drove 30 miles to basically an empty building.. Find something else to do!

Like so many other new urban art museums, the building that houses the Tampa Art Museum is a piece of avant-garde architecture. This one looks like a box made of perforated stainless steel/aluminum plates on an elevated site near the Hillsborough River. The contemporary photograph collection inside was engaging but not mind blowing. The Greek and Roman pottery, with a... More
