Great musuem for a 2-3 hour visit. Excellent representation of the history of Tampa from the Seminole Wars till today. Decent amount of interactive elements for children. Great exhibit on the history of Ybor city and the cigar industry. Great rotating/visiting exhibits on the top floor. Don't miss the map room and make sure to make time to eat lunch at the Columbia cafe (especially if you can't make it to the Columbia restaurant in Ybor).
