Came here for a school project I had to complete. It was by far amazing. The design of the building is incredible. If could have done my project on the building I would have. Many activities can be done at the site; during my visit there was a couple getting a tour of the museum for a possible wedding! Thats... More

And free! In a side room near the entrance (and near the bathroom), an art teacher guided children to create art with a theme, such as a painter whose work is currently on display. Watercolor, pens, colored pencils and stencils made for messy fun. We plan to return.

This museum is in a lovely part of Tampa and very easy to get to. Parking is adjacent, and as we went during the week, it was not crowded. The exhibit of Max's work was wonderful. The views from the terrace and eating area of museum restaurant are lovely. It was a nice way to spend a couple of hours.

The most beautiful part of this museum is the actual design of it. At night, it is lit up through that 'mesh' style outer facade and it looks simply breathtaking. Inside the museum, there is actually not much to do. The permanent art collection is nice, but the museum as a whole is a bit small and it won't take... More

We ended up at the museum because of a rain storm and it was the best find! I am a fan of Peter Max so i really enjoyed viewing the different aspects of his work. I always enjoy the bright colors and his patriotic theme for Ms. Liberty. I loved the museum- such a great modern art style to the... More

I attended the Shriners International Convention in Tampa, Florida and stayed at a hotel in the downtown area. The Tampa Museum of Art was located several blocks away and within walking distance. I picked up a flyer that gave a briefing that the Peter Max Art would be featured during the summer months and my wife and I decided to... More

I am not an art buff, so it is difficult for me to rank the quality of it as a museum Great for students because entry is free, probably not great for families with young children: the atmosphere was very serious and quiet inside.

Was super excited to check this museum out. It is beautiful from the outside and the lobby is elegant. Very small collection. Unless you are really into the featured exhibit, probably not worth a visit.

Excellent place to teach children about science and enjoy the other surroundings downtown has to offer. The museum is super clean affordable fun, so make sure to donate money to ensure places like this stay open to the public.
