I though I was going to see more pictures for the price I paid ($10), but I was dissapointed that it was only 3 rooms with not that many photographs. I think that place has potential, but someone should take better care of it.

Firstly, the museum is located in the Wolf designed square on the Hillsborough River in Tampa with huge round latticed windows. We enjoyed prtraits of Southern blues greats; architecture from the 50's and landscapes from Cambray France. Staff is helpful.

As we wandered about Tampa to investigate the city on a very short stay we discovered the museum in a building named Cube. The joke is it is next to a multi-story cylinder. A very small photo museum, in a gracious space, they had three...More

The museum occupies the second and part of the third floor of a small office building in downtown Tampa, within walking distance of the Museum of Art. The exhibits change so the museum's appeal depends on when you visit. Of the three exhibits there during...More

This museum wasn't worth my time and money. I have been to several photography museums in both large and small cities, and this one is the most lacking. The exhibit I saw was small and the gallery has a weird layout. The staff was okay...More

Beautiful surroundings and amazing facility.. Just not a whole lot to see. They say it's a $10 "donation" to get in but it's high pressure and they WILL get your $10. I really expected more. Hope this is just a work in progress and the...More

It's a cool place to get out of the heat and examine the current exhibit being showcased. The set up is nice and the building architecture is pretty interesting. It also happens to be the location shoot of the Punisher, so you get a bit...More

Have only four rooms with no more of 12 photos. Need more diversity. They suggested $10 donation. You seen the museum in 20 minutes.
