Definitely worth a visit. Beautiful building and grounds right on the river. Museum small but informative on history of Plant and Florida. Great photo opportunities as well.

Beautiful hotel that has been turned into a museum and the University of a Tampa Administration building. Perfect glimpse of Florida history that has been restored and maintained by the city. Well done! Plan on taking 2-3 hours to enjoy including the adjacent park.

We enjoyed the museum and the historic actor with presentation of a soldier during the Spanish-American War. It was well worth the drive on a Sunday, despite the traffic to visit.

It is a small museum but worth visiting. The hand-held audio makes the tour insightful to know how it was back then.

The museum is extremely eloquent with furniture, paintings and sculptures. The self guided audio takes you back in time to appreciate the ambience of the hotel. We spent about 90 minutes carefully listening and soaking in the experience.
